"Knute" Rutledge (left) gives 
members of the reed section a pep 
talk before last Friday night's con- 
cert. Charlie Kreis (right) , trom- 
bonist in the symphony, enters En- 
gle Hall (late as usual) in a most 
peculiar manner. Seems Charlie 
knew he would be late, and this 
unorthodox entrance was approved 
by "Knute" himself, who arranged 
for the ladder. It was a special dis- 
pensation to the dignity of labor: 
Charlie works nights. 


At the most recent meeting of 
lie Radio Workshop, a new pro- 
ram schedule was planned. It was 
decided by all present that the new 
of programs would begin the

ram will be a test for the work- 
top, which has not been function- 
ag with much success this semes- 

In his speech to the club, Mr. 
eiverling, the adviser, warned that 
tiore cooperation from the mem- 
bers of the Workshop is urgently 
needed, because the organization 
aay cease to exist.

Fehr Enough 

Columnist's "Henry V" Article 

Evokes Heated Dissenting Opinion 


(Editor's Note—The unexpected reaction to Al Fehr's column on the 
behavior of school children who attended the recent performances of 
the film, "Henry V," brought forth a storm of protest— not from the high 
schools who were sent clippings of the column— but from L. V. students. 
We are printing here two of the rebuttals. Neither of the letters has 
been edited in any way.) 

To the Editor of LA VIE: 

In Mr. Fehr's last letter in the publication of December the ninth, 
Mr. Fehr stated that if someone disagrees with him that person should 
advance his arguments. Well— here it is. 

I do not disagree with Mr. Fehr too highly upon the subject mate- 
rial but the language in which the article was written was certainly not 
that of a college student and definitely not that dn the celebrated 
"brain" that Mr. Fehr is supposed to be. The subject itself is quite tnval 
and if I am not mistaken the general youngster always has and prob- 
ably always will-literally raise "hell" in an afternoon matinee at the 
local theater. If Mr. Fehr had wanted to see Henery the Fifth for the 
value he claims he honed to obtain from the production he should have 
attended the evening show as did most of the college students. We all 
know what to expect in an afternoon matinee, especially when every 
High School and Grade School for miles around drag their students to 
the production. The fault also lies with the schools, for they should have 
known that the production was over the heads of the general high school 
and grade school student. Personally, I would advise Mr. Fehr to take 
a little more Psychology— the article shows a profound ignorance of the 
sub j Get 

In closing, I wish to apologize to the Lebanon State Theater, for Mr. 
Fehr Mr Fehr is evidently poorly informd upon the situation, for I have 
never seen in Lebanon, or many other towns of its size, a smoother run 
or more comfortable theater. They are to be complimented and thanked 
for offering us special rate tickets to see this picture. I am sure that the 
majority of the students appreciate their kindness. 


I'm confused— in one sentence, Bob says he agrees with my subject 
material which I immediately feel shows a fair knowledge of psychology 
and then in another I "show a profound ignorance of the subject. The 
Grover system of "profound psychology" runs something like this— study 
a lot of psychology, understand it, then tolerate everything you under- 
stand If you're intolerant then escape the problem by flight or avoid- 
ance. "Henry V" played for one day and I happened to be busy that 
night. There are many people on night turn and many others whose 
busy schedules force attendance at matinees. Are they to abstain just 
because matinees are "always" noisy and "probably always will" be? 
Should these people study psychology profoundly and tolerate a lousy 
condition merely because they "understand" it? By the same reasoning 
we could tolerate such conditions as crime, juvenile delinquency, and 

Suppose, Bob, that you live in a neighborhood that has a high crime 
rate. First you would advocate a thorough study of the psychology of 
crime. Now you understand crime better, so next you must tolerate it. 
What? You are intolerant of crime? Well, your knowledge of psychology 
is not sufficiently "profound"! Why don't you move to another neigh- 
borhood (the evening performance) to avoid your crime-ridden area 
(the matinee) ? Frankly, Bob, I see psychology as a means of BETTER- 
ING society, not as a vehicle for tolerating its evils. 

My language has always been aggressive. I call a spade a spade and 
a brat a brat. I refuse to rob my expressions of masculine vigor in ex- 
change for a vague, effeminate, icishy-washy "college" standard. My 
apologies for offending you, Bob. 

As for the State Theater, they took a well-calculated risk in show- 
ing "Henry V," but they failed miserably to facilitate enjoyment of the 
film. That is a theater's job, just as much as selling tickets. Repeated 
performances of audience misbehavior may make it difficult to get oth-

Conserv Profs Attend 
Chi Music Convention 

Miss Mary E. Gillespie and Pro- 
fessor Merl Freeland of the con- 
servatory attended the National As- 
sociation of Schools of Music and 
the Music Teachers National As- 
sociation convention in the Stevens 
Hotel in Chicago, on December 27 
through to December 30. 

Both representatives from .Leb- 
anon Valley attended lectures and 
conferences. The highlight of the 
convention was a recital given at 
the Chicago Conservatory, which 
presented a premiere performance 
of several compositions composed 
for brass instruments by four con- 
temporary writers. After the reci- 
tal, the conservatory, headed by 
Rudolph Gantz, gave a supper for 
all of those in attendance.

Miss Sutton Reveals Interests; Quotes 
Emerson As She Interviews Interviews 


I dropped into the friendliest room on campus this morning to gat* 
er* few facts about the sweetheart of the college You know 
. . . .Miss Sutton, of course! If it wouldn't have been so close * te lun<* 
time, I'm sure I would have had to wait in Ime to 
the popular lady's room, but as it was I only had to fight the cleaning 

er fine pictures to Lebanon— "Hamlet," for instance. Hundreds of people 
will not trust the State Theater to sell future enjoyment. 

Response to stimulus: 

I thoroughly enjoyed Al Fehr's cleverly written diatribe re "pro- 
gressive education." I believe, however, that Mr. Fehr, in the extremity 
of his indignation, has misdirected his ire. Although his imputation was 
qualified by an "if," he apparently attributes the conduct of the "teen- 
agers" at the recent showing of Henry V to "progressive education." 

Surely Mr. Fehr does not believe that Lebanon County, that citadel 
of rock-ribbed conservatism, that province of German patois, that region 
of the flourishing hex and thriving superstition, could produce so many 
outstanding examples of "progressive education." Rather, it seems that 
this "sorry performance" is but a glaring instance of what European in- 
tellectuals like to call "the barbarity of American culture." 

Does it seem likely that this group of irresponsible youngsters would 
have exhibted a similar lack of interest, attention, and consideration for 
others had they been watching a Bugs Bunny cartoon, a musical starring 
Frank Sinatra, or newsreel shots of football games? I think not. This 
self-same group will, with very few exceptions, follow in the cultural 
footsteps of their parents, moving progressively from comic books (dime 
novels in the parents' case) to detective or love-story magazines, final- 
ly reaching supreme intellectual maturity in The Reader's Digest. This 
demonstration which so incensed Mr. Fehr is nothing more than a mani- 
festation or our American culture (or lack of it) . 

To preclude the possibility that the foregoing might imply that I am 
an advocate of "progressive education," I would like to take my stand 
in support of the good old "spare the rod" philosophy of child discipline. 


Dear Jim: 

Enjoyed your letter immensely and your witty description of Leba- 
non "culture," but we seem to differ on a few minor points of definition 
and emphasis. The label "progressive education," does not necessarily 
mean that it is PROGRESSIVE. Its adherents seem to think it is. Despite 
the conservatism of Lebanon County, I feel that ideas have a way of 
permeating to the darndest places. Furthermore, the behavior of our 
school kids, in schools, in public places, and on the streets seems to indi- 
cate that "progressive" ideas have influenced both home and school — 
yes, in Lebanon County. Hoio else could you explain the laxity in disci- 
pline, the bad manners, and the other brattish attitudes?

With The Dutchmen 


About the only definite information to be gleaned from the first 
games of this hectic basketball season is the fact that the game is 
re wide open than ever. Let us compare the opening six games last 
r with the same number this year. The Flying Dutchmn have con- 
-ted for 396 points this year to 295 for last year. Also they have 
niitted 382 points to be tallied as against only 303 for the same 
ount of games last year. 

Again looking back to last season, your reporter predicted a 7 and 1 
ord for the final 8 games for the Blue & White after winning only 
f their first eight, and "hit it right on the nose." But this year there 

three games with two new opponents and the season's results are 
ch more unpredictable at this early date with only one-third of the 
son completed. But a long-range prediction of 7 wins and 5 losses 
ould be just about correct we think. 

Taking our boys collectively, they have done just about all that was 
pected of them. However, the "blow-ups" in the Lafayette and second 
ranton games are unexplainable. Head Coach Ralph Mease has praised 
e ir fight and their desire to play and to win. This goes a long way 
basketball, sometimes making up for the lack in height. We want 
ditto the praise that Coach Mease has given the boys. They are our 
ys— let's back them to the hilt. 

What riles this column is the number of supposedly "know it all" 
ys in the bleachers who call the men on the floor everything under 
e sun, when they themselves could not even stand in their shoes, let 
one play the game. 

Individually, Floyd Becker has been his old self and is maintaining 
14.7 per game average. Bill "Whitey" Brunner has been great on the 
ckboards and has surprised with his offensive strength. "Hank" Di 
hnson has been playing great ball offensively and defensively. "Bob- 
y" Hess still excels on defensive play, but he has not yet found his 
hooting eye." When he does, he will make the Flying Dutchmen just 
at much more dangerous. Charley Zimmerman has been playing great 
% his play in last Saturday's E-Town game in which he played the 
tire route being the prime example to date. His push shots from the 
de are beautiful. Larry Kinsella is another who shot into prominence 

the E-Town game with his speed and scoring. Raymie Kline has 
en steadily improving and is making his 6' 5" felt. 

The Junior Varsity, after opening with two consecutive victories 
ill need a little revamping it seems if they are to regain their winning 
ays after dropping three in a row. Neal Woll and Red Langstaff have 
en playing consistently good basketball for the Jay-Vees, but they 
n't do it all. Dale Shellenberger finally got his chance and played a 
and floor game, intercepting passes and doing a good job under the 
ponents' basket. 

Well, that does it! This is the final copy for yours truly, who has 
njoyed every moment of following the Lebanon Valley campaigns in

"Hank" Parker, 6' 3", who was high 
scorer with 224 points last year in 
28 games, working from the pivot, 
and dominating the boards both on 
offense and defense; "Georgie" 
Moore, 5' 10 V2", former all New 
York City guard in high school, 
and'third highest scorer last year 
who racked up 30 points in the In- 
diana game this year, and 
"Stretch" Williams, 6' 3", fourth 
highest scorer last year, and cap- 
able of throwing his hook shot 
from any spot on the floor, at 
guard posts. 

Two weeks later, the Blue and 
White travels to Baltimore to en- 
gage the University of Baltimore in 
a return engagement of last year's 
game in which the Valleymen wal- 
loped the Bees by a 109 to 47 score. 
However, this year the Bees have 
several new players and are an im- 
proved team and will have the de- 
cided advantage of playing at 
home, with the Dutchmen handi- 
capped by the long journey. Their 
record at the moment stands at 4 
victories and 3 defeats with games 
against William and Mary, Towson 
Tchrs., Susquehanna and Juniata 
scheduled before opposing the Fly- 
ing Dutchmen. It need not be add- 
ed that the Bees will be up for this 
.game and determined to average 
iast year's humiliating defeat.

Miss Sutton 

(Continued from page 2) 

"I see you have quite a few books. 
Do you read a lot?" 

"Oh, all the time!" 

The last speech was punctuated 
with the inimitable little laugh and 
cough that is so familiar to Miss 
Sutton's admirers. 

"I love mystery stories," she con- 
tinued. "But purely for escape. I'm 
reading 'Raintree Country' now 
and I just love it! Why, last week I 
lived the entire time in that coun- 
try. . .1 get so engrossed. Do you 
like to read?" 

"Ummn, but I don't have enough 

"Well, you know I spend all my 
spare time reading. Recently I 
found a quotation that you might 
like, it's by Emerson ... 'You can't 
trust your wits to entertain your 
friends so you buy ice-cream, I 
just love that, don't you? You know 
I used to do quite a bit of quoting 
but I've been reading about a man 
who quoted so much that he lost all 
his originality, so I'm very careful 

(As if our Miss Sutton could be 
anything but original.) 

"What's the funniest thing that 
ever happened in South Hall, Miss 

"Well, a lot of funny things hap- 
pen. Some I'm not supposed to 
know about, but I find out. Ummn, 
I know more than the girls think." 

I smiled wanly and began reflect- 

"There was the time during a big 
rainstorm that I saw a man dress- 
ed in very odd clothes on our porch 
and I turned to Millie Neff and 
said, 'What does that man want?' 
Then I saw it was Bob Beck and I 
knew what he wanted. Or the time 
one of the girls was imitating me 
and my atomizer with an old oil- 
can. . .1 guess most of the jokes are 
on me." 

"Of course the raids that boys 
pulled on our dorm were funny; 
but I still can't figure out how they 
got in. How did you ever get to 
Lebanon Valley?" 

This was the actual epitome of 
Miss Sutton. Her interest in the 
other person. . .a natural-born psy- 

"But, Miss Sutton, I'm doing the 
interviewing! When did you start 
this character reading?" 

"Well, I've been reading cards 

since I was fourteen; but I've al- 
ways been interested in people. 
That's why I like my job... only I 
think it would be a much easier job 
to be housemother to a dorm of 
boys. . .no rules, no parlor dates, no 
one wanting to make love to 

I laughed; but I won't mention 
why. (These girls ARE a problem!) 
Suddenly a scream echoed through 
the halls of the dorm, Miss Sutton 
leaped to her feet and was out in 
the hall before I had closed my 

"Butch Bell!" 

I followed the noise, found sev- 
eral shrieking girls running down 
the hall, and Butch roaring with 
hilarity standing in the doorway to 
a room that resembled the after- 
math of Bikini. 

"What happened?" 

"Nothing, Miss Sutton... a bottle 
of gingerale exploded at the same 
time the beds collapsed, and I 
broke a paper bog just before the 
window fell out and hit my room- 
mate who was bending over to pick 
up a jar of jam that dropped... 
nothing, really." 

Miss Sutton rais'ed her clenched 
fists to her forehead and looked 
heavenward ; 

"Do you see what I mean? They 
are all individuals."

Whether you invest a part of your savings

thousands of everyday people do) or whether 
you pay a bill for telephone service (as more 
hundreds of thousands of people do), you 
expect your money's worth. 
It is up to us to see that you get it ... to see 
that the dollars which you invest (the dollars

Valley Courtsters on Winning End 
With Four Wins and Two Losses 


Lebanon Valley's basketballers racked up their fourth win of the cur- 
rent court campaign by trimming Elizabethtown College 79-69 in Leba- 
non on Saturday night before a jammed-packed house of approximately 
2,500 persons. 

The spectators witnessed a rugged contest in which no less than 48' 
personal fouls were called by the I J 

officials. Frank Keath, E-town's 
high scoring forward and all-stater 
in Pennsylvania college ranks last 
season, dunked 19 points in vain 
for the visiting rivals. Larry Kin- 
sella scored in double figures for 
the first time this season to pace 
the Flying Dutchmen with 17 tal- 
lies. Following him were Chuck 
Zimmerman with 16 counters, Floyd 
Becker with 14, while center Ray 
Kline plunked in 10. 

Trailing only 23-22 at the end 
of the second chukker, the LVC 
Junior Varsity succumbed to an 18 
point E-town JayVee rally in the 
third period and lost out 50-37. Neai 
Woll and Mike Zajac poured 11 and 
10 points thru the hoops respect- 
ively for the losers. 


In the season's opener at Leba- 
non on December 8, Coach Ralph 
Mease's charges whipped Western 
Maryland 65-44. The latter contest 
saw the Blue and White fall be- 
hind 13-9 in the first period, but 
come back to hold a slim 24-23 half 
time lead. In the third quarter LVC 
scampered off with the victory as 
the Green Terrors were outscored 
19-5. Becker paced the Valleyites 
with 17 points, while Whitey Brun- 
ner accounted for 14 markers and 
Hank Di Johnson flipped in 11. In 
the preliminary contest the Leba- 
non Valley's JV's trounced the 
WMC JV's 59-38 with Woll regis- 
tering 16 markers to lead the locals. 

The ensuing Saturday found the 
Blue and White playing their sec- 
ond game at home against Juniata 
College. The Dutchmen picked up 
a 47-25 halftime lead and then 
coasted to an easy 78-54 triumph 
Brunner led the LVC attack with 
19 points while Di Johnson and 
Becker sank 14 and 13 respectively. 
Holmes Ulsh took scoring laurels 
for the fray as he racked up 24 
points in a losing Indian cause. The 
Jayvee tussle also went to the Val- 
ley, the LV Juniors trampling Har- 
risburg Penn State Center 50-37. 
Don' Langstaff was high man for 
the little Dutchmen with 18 mark- 
ers, while Joe Oxley rang the bell 
12 times. 

A classy and. powerful Lafayette 
College cage combine, paced by 
center Duane Warrick who zipped 
in 26 tallies, hung the first defeat 
of the season on the Dutchmen as 
they won 71-42 at Easton on De- 
cember 16. Forward Floyd Becker 
was the only Valley man to score 
in double figures, hitting with six 
field goals for 12 points. 

Playing their last game before 
the Christmas holidays, the Blue 
and White cagemen tripped Scran- 
ton University 73-64 in an impres- 
sive tussle at Lebanon on December 
18. LVC romped off to a 37-28 half- 
time lead, but the visiting Royals 
cut it to 50-47 at the end of the 
third frame. Coach Mease's men, 
however, ripped the nets for 23 tal- 
lies in the final canto and were 
victorious. Stellar Whitey Brunner 
showed the way for Valley with 20 
points, while sharpshooting Floyd 
Becker rimmed 18 markers. Chuck 
Zimmerman tallied 12, but Scran- 
ton's Pete Medvecky parted the 
nets with 24 points for high scor- 
ing honors. The LVC Jayvees were 
nipped 46-44 in the preceding bat 

tie. Don Greer led the Blue and 
White with 11 counters. 

The new year was opened on a 
dismal note for Valley rooters, as a 
revengeful Scranton team, with 
big Jack Lehighton scoring 20 
points, bagged an 80-59 victory over 
the Flying Dutchmen in the coal 
region city. Becker and DiJohnson 
each hit the cords with 14 points, 
while Kline tossed in 13 markers. 
Scranton made a clean sweep of 
the evening as the Royal under- 
studies garnered a 65-56 triumph 
over the LVC Jayvees. Woll and 
Langstaff each canned 11 counters 
for the Junior Dutchmen. 

Junior Class to Sponsor 
Vocal Quartet Contest 

On Friday, February 4, in Engle 
Hall, the Junior Class will hold a 
musical contest featuring vocal 
quartets. The rules of the contest, 
recently released by those Juniors 
in charge of the affair are relative- 
ly easy to obey. Their main stipula- 
tions are that all quartets be vocal, 
that each participant be in one 
quartet only, and that each quartet 
prepare two songs which must be 
submitted to Al Zangrelli before the 
night of the contest. 

The quartets will be judged on 
quality of singing and song pre- 

In a letter sent to all campus or- 
ganizations, the Junior Class asked 
that each club submit a quartet to 
the contest. 

A first and second prize will be 
awarded to the winning quartets.

La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, February 10, 1945 

Change . . . And More Change 

La Vie News Editor 
THIS is a new LA VIE. It might be better to say ANOTHER new 
• La Vie. for this is the second time this school year that the news- 
paper has been changed. The new size and print were chosen to 
please the students. This, however, does not change the news cover- 
age. It should improve: with this issue LA VIE once again becomes 
a weekly. 

There is a great deal of student dissatisfaction with LA VIE. 
The editors are well aware of this, and intend to make an honest 
effort to remedy the situation this semester. But nothing can be 
done without the cooperation of the students., .you. With that in 
mind, LA VIE is going to prepare a questionnaire to be distributed 
in a near future Chapel program. YOU must answer it if you 
want any improvement, for it is YOUR paper. No one excuses him- 
self for the present situation by blaming someone else, but it is obvious 
that a whispering campaign is neither honest nor fair. Therefore, it 
is to the student's advantage to answer the questions in that question- 
naire. No one wants to know your name, but everyone wants to know 
your grievances. 

Of course, there are other reasons for distributing such a 
questionnaire. For one thing, it's about time that everyone make 
his position clear. There is practically no cooperaton with LA VIE 
at present to aid in the endeavors of the staff to put out a paper with 
news. There are, however, many, many things being said about the 
paper. This is your chance to VOICE them and to see what can 
and will be done about them this year. 

LA VIE asks your honest aid.

sorry and disappointed. We tried our 
best to permit the campus paper to

fact that the advance publicity stated 
specifically that the story was to 
appear simultaneously with "La Vie."

On Rent Control: Landlords 
Are "Greedy Little Pigs" 


The recent widely publicized strike of landlords in Tulsa and 
parts of Texas against the pending rent control bill before Congress 
poses a serious question to students of sociology and political science. 
Are homes and apartments simply commodities that can be sold 
or withdrawn to suit the whims or prejudices of the owners? Or 
are homes more than commodities 
— are they property that places 

QampuA. ClothsLbu QIdmL.. . by Jo 

Since we can't help but be thinking of St. Valentine's Day 
round this time, as the grace note to sentiment which lifts our 
spirits so high . . . why not let Cupid and all of the frilly wonder- 
fulness for which he stands, give us the cue to fashion this week? 

Together with choosing the just-right card for that just right one 
in our feminine lines, aren't we 
always tempted into buying a few 
tricky comic Valentines for those 
Good-Joe friends of ours whom 
we're sure will take the friendly 
slams like a faithful Great Dane 
pup? Sure we are. Tricks, tricks, 
tricks. . .how we love them. 

And speaking of tricks, don't 
think for one minute that the in- 
dividuals who are "in the know" 
in the fashion world allow the 
same temptation to go by un- 
noticed. They've capitalized on 
doing tricks with the classic styles 
•to a great extent. 

Look what they've cleverly 
done with the silk burnt-orange 
shirtwaist which lovely Joan Or- 

lando models above. Basically it's 
got just the standby sameness. . . 
until we glance at the collar, and 
what's been done with that cer- 
tainly shows ingenuity plus! The 
collar can be placed flat and very 
tailored, or tucked in and lifted 
for a very Chinesy mandarin ef- 
fect, and lastly, lifted in a more 
severe fashion with an added two 
strands of pearls which really 
does it! What's so wonderful 
about it? She can fool the same 
date three times into thinking 
she's bought herself a new blouse. 
How's that for economy? 

Ah yes, tricks. . .ain't they 
handy though? 

upon the owners a heavy social 

The housing shortage in our 
country is a critical one. It is a 
serious problem that produces 
other social problems as in a 
chain reaction. Divorces, juvenile 
delinquency, poor health, poverty, 
and a horde of other evils are di- 
rectly related to the housing sit- 
uation. Can any government 
worth its salt allow a bunch of 
Mammon worshipers to harm the 
very society that nurtures them? 
These landlords of the Southwest, 
acting in bad faith, have indicated 
their intentions of vacating their 
homes in 60 days and boarding 
them up in protest against their 
government. Decent housing 
means happy parents and children 
and good citizens. The welfare of 
families is MORE important than 
the property rights of landlords. 

This doctrine of social respon- 
sibility must be impressed on all 
pressure groups — business, labor, 
farm, professional — before their 
narrow interests do irreparable 
damage to our social order. If 
these groups cannot tune their 
actions to the waveband of social 
welfare the government must, of 
necessity, step in and "cut them 
off the air." Irresponsible land- 
lordism will only cause more re- 
strictions on property and bring 
more public housing. 

There is the argument that 
landlords are losing money be- 
cause of the rent control act. 
Judging from the huge amounts 
spent by the real estate lobbies In 

Washington we are inclined to 
think they are making very « 
sonable earnings. It's perhaps 
case of envy. During the days Jj 
OPA the food companies and wj 
durable goods industries were W 
satisfied with their handSMJ 
profits and looked across the pr 
control barriers to the more ten

Blue And White Go In The Red After 
Dropping Sixth Game In Eleven Starts 

Red Lions Take Early 
Lead On Reading Court 

The Lebanon Valley cagers were 
on the wrong side of the ledger 
for the first time this season as 
they dropped their sixth game in 
eleven starts to their arch rival, 
Albright College, in Reading on 
Saturday evening, February 5 
Albright's Roaring Lions jumped 
out to a commanding 17-3 first 
quarter lead and were never head- 
ed the rest of the way, as they 
coasted to a 59-41 victory. 

Had the Dutchmen been able 
to cope with the Red and White 
scoring in the first period, the re- 
sun might have been different. 
Coach Ralph Mease's dribblers 
dunked only eight points in the 
second period and 16 in the final 
stanza, and Albright did the 
same The home team outscored 
LV by just four points in the 
third session. Goldin paced the 
Albright attack with 13 counters 
While Kriebel registered H- 
Larry Kinsella continued scoring 
high for the Blue and White, as 
he and "Whitey" Brunner each 
acounted for U markers. 

The LVC Jay-vees blew a 25-19 
first half lead and bowed to Al- 
bright's understudies by a 48-3 5 
margin. Lefty Mike Zajac and Joe 
Oxlev led the little Dutchmen 
with U Points while Don Greer 
hit for 10. Leithman of Albright 
took scoring laurels with 14 

Clubbed by Moravian 

In other tussles previous to the 
Albright game, Lebanon Valley 
was clubbed by Moravian 73-61 
at Bethlehem on January 12. A 
euy named Stengle did most of 
the damage as he threw in 24 
points to lead the Greyhounds. 

Floyd Becker was high scorer for 
the Flying Dutchmen with 16 
points while Larry Kinsella ac- 
counted for 15. 

In the preliminary game, Mike 
Zajac rimmed 13 counters to lead 
the LVC JVs to a 53-33 triumph 
over the Greyhound Pups. Joe 
Oxley and Don Greer swished in 
11 and 10 respectively to be run- 
ner ups. 

On January 15, the All-Negro 
team of Lincoln University rolled 
into Lebanon v/ith a tall, rangy 
squad and then marched out with 
a 64-47 win over the Blue and 
White. Pepe Moore personally 
helped the Emancipators achieve 
victory as he scorched the silk for 
23 points. Once again, Larry 
Kinsella paced the Measemen, 
this time with 18 counters while 
Don Langstaff flipped in 11. 

In the preceding fray, the LVC 
Juniors mopped the floor with 
Hershey Junior College 71-39. 
Alfieri, Monteith, Greer and Woll 
spark-plugged the winners while 
HJC's Jim Mohr was the standout 
with 26 markers. 

Trim Baltimore 
Laying off the hardwoods dur- 
ing the exam period, the Flying 
Dutchmen returned to the court 
wars by trimming Baltimore Uni- 
versity 65-60 at Baltimore on 
Saturday, January 29. This game 
was no runaway as last year's had 
been, when the Blue and White 
cagers lacerated the Bees 109-47. 
Baltimore led at halftime 34-31, 
but a 23 point barrage in the 
third frame gave the Anvillites 
the victory. The Marylanders 
rallied with 18 points in the final 
chukker to no avail. Center 
Raymie Kline led the Dutchmen 
with 18 markers while Kinsella 
and Becker had 16 and 15 re-

Student Faculty Council 
To Publish "L" Book 

At the last meeting of the Stu- 
dent F'aculty Council, it was voted 
to take over the publication of 
the "L" Book. In the past the 
"L" Book was published by the 
two "Y's." 

At the next meeting, Tuesday, 
February 22, names of students 
will be considered as suggestions 
for editors who will be named in 
the near future. This will enable 
them to begin planning early and 
perhaps improve the book in some 

It is felt that because all major 
organizations are represented m 
the Student Faculty Council, it, 
rather than the "Y's" should have 
charge of the publication 

All students are invited to Uie 
meetings of the Student Faculty 
Council which are held in Room 
No 5 on alternate Tuesdays at 
4-00 o'clock in the afternoon. 

"Bride Of The Eagle" By Dr. Struble 
To Be Theme For May Day Pageant 

Plot And Cast Revealed 
For Kalo-Delphian Play 

The Kaufmann and Hart play, 
"You Can't Take It With You," 
to be produced on March 4 by 
Kalo-Delphian societies under the 
direction of Bob Moller, Jeanne 
Hull, and Liz Beittel, is a three- 
act comedy. 

The scene is set in the home 
of Martin Vanderhof (played by 
Bill Ferguson) in New York City, 
close to Columbia University. The 
members of the household include 
Mr. Vanderhof 's daughter and her 
husband, Paul Sycamore (Ethel 
Mae Beam and Mel Knipe) ; a 
young daughter of the Sycamores, 
Alice (Dottie Thomas); another 
daughter and her husband, Ed 
(played by Lee Wells and Dave 
Dundore): a retired ice-man, Mr. 
Depinna (played by Alden Biely). 

Alice is courted by a wealthy 
young man named Tony Kirby 
(Ed Tesnar) who brings his fam- 
ily to the do-as-you-please Syca- 
more house on the wrong night 
for dinner. The Kirbys, leading 
socialites, are much disturbed by 
the actions of the family such as 
raising pet snakes, making fire- 
works, and eating corn flakes for 
three meals a day. As a result of 
the Kirby visit, Alice and Tony 
break their engagement because 
they see the difference in the two 
families . and decide "it just 
wouldn't work". 

In the last act, Mr. Vanderhof 
pulls Mr. Kirby off his proverbial 
high horse and reunites Tony and 
Alice. .

Dr. George G. Struble has writ-

on Campus, Saturday, May 7. 
The voice of the Old Sourdough: 

I suppose you're too young to 
remember, but to me it's as plain 
as if it was yesterday. It hap- 
pened way back in 1976, when 
they were getting up this world's 
fair at Washington to celebrate 
the two-hundredth anniversary of 
our Declaration of Independence. 
It was an important occasion in 
another way, too, because Alaska 
had just been admitted as a state, 
and they were going to have the 
big fair a big ceremony granting 
her the rights of statehood. With 
Hawaii, that made fifty states, 
and completed the number. And 
they were to unfurl the new flag

The Charge... 

To the editors: 

In the last issue of LA VIE in the editorial Change . . . and More 
Change, you asked for our grievances and to make our position clear. 
You no doubt had in mind that this was to be done through the ques- 
tionnaire you are going to hand out in chapel. Well, we feel that the 
situation now requires more than answering questionnaires, so we 
have written the following to be considered a letter to the editor, or 
whatever you like. It states our position, and we believe many others, 
most clearly. 

We do not only ask that it be printed in the next LA VIE, but we 
beg of you to print it. We want something done about LA VlE and 
believe that we can do our part by writing the following answer to 
your editorial and your paper in general. 

If you do not print it, and in its entirety, we have made a carbon 
copy and shall run off copies and hand them out to the students next 

Bill Fisher, 
Jim Gregg 


Change. . .and More Change — but still not the right change. 
That new LA VIE, ugh! As former members of LA VIE and with 
some knowledge of how the staff works, and we use the word 
loosely, we are now writing this letter as disatisfied students 
hopeing that it will do some good. You asked everyone to make 
his position clear. You want our 

greviences. Here they are! 

Last weeks editorial, Change 
. . . and More Change, illustrates 
what is, and what has been wrong 
with LA VIE. 

"The new size and print were 
chosen to please the students." 

Come now, where did you dig 
that one up? What students? 
We've never heard anyone, except 
the staff itself, complain about 
the size and print; but rather, 
the printed matter. The size and 
print are NOT the answer to the 
problems and difficulties of LA 
VIE, and by \now you should 
know it. In fact, this new, "over- 
seas edition" of LA VIE looks 
cheaper, kiddish, high schoolish, 
or call it what you will — we don't 
like it! 

All we as students want is a 
GOOD college newspaper, not a 
gem of journalistic achievement 
which LA VIE professes to be, but 
isn't, with its new type, new look, 
etc. Let's face it. New printers 
and new layouts won't solve the 
condition. Real effort, put forth 
in a practical, AND NOT ALIEN- 
ATING MANNER, by editors that 
have a real interest in reporting 
college life will do much more 
than any of your student question- 

"This however, does not change 
the news coverage. It should im- 

Egads, let's hope so. That s 
one of your troubles — news cov- 

"There is a great deal of stu- 
dent disatisfaction with LA VIE. 
The editors are well aware of this, 
and intend to make an honest 
effort to remedy the situation this 

What is an "honest effort?" 
Where were your "honest efforts" 
last semester? 

"But nothing can be done with- 
out the cooperation of the stu- 
dents — you." 

That's really a classic. What can 
cooperation on the part of the 
students do to improve LA VIE? 
You tell us what the trouble is 
(no cooperation on the part of 
the students) but give no remedy. 
You know the students are not 
responsible for LA VIE'S sad sag. 
The trouble lies WITHIN the or- 
ganization, not with the students. 
We make news, now get the re- 
porters to report it. We also know 
of cases where the news was re- 

ported, given to the editors, and 
then wasn't printed. Remember 
the Frosh-Soph vs. Junior-Senior 
football game? 

Right now your sad sheet is 
hardly more than a big laugh. It 
makes for good conversation 
doing the week when we don't 
have anything else to gripe about. 
And here you are blaming it on 
the students. When a city daily 
goes to pot they don't blame the 

...The Rebuttal 

% 1 1 

DISTORTION of the facts, prejudicial and personal vindictiveness 
egoistic discontent. . .these do not make valid criticism. This issue 
is obviously one of controversial treatment. Journalistic ethics set m 
an unfair system of reply to such violent attacks, ostensibly perso 
as must be printed. Yet some reply must be made, regardless of 
ard procedure, in order that the real and not-so-obvious facts mar « 
confute damaging animosity. 

The first general observation a discerning reader should take • 
seriously is the well-known propagandist technique of taking words, 1 
phrases, sentences out of their context. It is an insidiously effective 
device. For this reason a knowledge of what last's week's editorial ' 
really said is a must. It 
We shall disregard the personal bias that permeates the letter. It 

A Statement 

We apologize to our readers for allotting this much 
space to the letters appearing on this page; we realize that 
we lay ourselves bare to critcism from the standpoint of 
journalistic ethics for allowing this sort of writing to ap- 
pear. But as you can see, we had no choice. The author of 
the rebuttal, Charlie Elia, LA VIE'S feature editor, has at- 
tempted so far as is possible to refrain from a counter-at- 
tack dealing with personalities, but the nature of the attack 
precluded the possibility of such treatment. 

We should like to remind the writers that this letter 
took up as much space as the much-maligned cigarette ad 
(which incidently will not appear in every issue now that. 
LA VIE has become a weekly) nor does it improve our news 


We shall disregard the muddled, emotional attitude, the infantile 
outbursts of unprincipled envy, the puerile appeal to the feelings that 
combined to produce this letter. What is the issue? 
Point one: The size and print. 

No one desired a change to solve all the problems of publication. 
Nor did anyone believe that new format would create a journalistic 
Utopia. But, when smaller size, larger selection of type, and more 
accord with a printer make possible a weekly newspaper, with more 
timely, more complete coverage of the news, is traditional and narrow 
satisfaction to prevent it? 

Point two: News coverage and cooperation. 

Here undeniably is a contradiction. News coverage and coopera- 
tion on the part of students cannot be put into separate, unconnected 
compartments as the "gripers" would make a primary tenet in their 
theory. The people who make up this paper are students; students 
who, ideally, are asked to take an assignment, get the news, write 
the copy, edit it. They are members of campus organizations. They 
ARE the organization. They are not employees contracted for; they 
are not reimbursed except by whatever aesthetic satisfaction they may 
derive from public service. Their responsibility is invaded sometimes 
by more pressing activities, sometimes by indifference. The incentive 
for steady, faithful service is absent. The student is both customer 
and reporter. The analogy to city dailies is false. A career journaus 
lives by his work. No story, no job. Here, no story, no story, 
the editors worry about that. 

Point three: Balance of maw 

The Chesterfield ad is undojjj 
tedly a handicap. But did i 
"critics" ever hear of contr a 
and their inviolability? Tear 

„ the prob 
,rial balance.* 

And while we are on 
lem of proper edito 
a paper that is 
sports better balanced than 
present one? nf th 

Point four: The "shouts 01 

critics." qjjl! 

Up to this printing the , 
repeat, ONLY letter to tne ^ 

of this newspaper built aro« 

customers. LA Vie isn't a city 
daily, but you know better than 
to blame the students for your 
publishing a poor paper. 

Why don't you cooperate on the 
inside? Seems as though the edi- 
tors can't cooperate with a print- 
er who is responsible for basket- 
ball programs, other LA VIE'S 
in years past, the Alumni Bulletin, 
and The HEX. All of these were 
printed in a most helpful and 
considerate manner and at a cost 
much lower than available else- 
where. But LA VIE had trouble 
with the printer. Why? 

"No one excuses himself for the 
present situation by blameing 
someone else . . ." 

Why not? What did you do 
but more or less blame the stu- 
EDITORS! And rightly so. Again, 
the trouble lies within the or- 
ganization, not without. 

"....but it is obvious that a 
whispering campaign is neither 
honest nor fair." 

What do you mean, a WHIS- 
PERING campaign? We've been

Granted Mr. Fehr, that some 
landlords are "Greedy Little Pigs" 
as you choose to call them but are 
w they all? You state that judging 
from the huge amounts spent by 
the real estate lobbies in Wash- 
ington you are inclined to think 
they are making very reasonable 
earnings, using the same basis as 
a judgment I could say the but- 
ter interests as well as labor is 
jlso making substantial earnings. 
I say could and not that they are. 

Let us look at the facts for a 
moment. Since the inception of 
Rent Control in 1941 the land- 
lords have received one increase 
in rent — a voluntary one at that. 
Many rents are based on the years 
1939 and '40 — that is on houses 
constructed at that time. Rents 
based on years when prices were 
relatively low, labor cheap, and 
raxes low. Since then everything 
"as gone up and since houses need 
pairs they must be made at 
Prices that are comparatively 
Jign. Furthermore, the Rent Con- 
roi authorities allow an increase 
'n rent of one dollar for every one 

UtS dollars s P ent on a 
'AJUft improvement . In other 

tn h ' the landl °rd can only hope 
nave his original investment 
jSi in eight and one-third 
inva r~ allowing no return on his 
vestment. Does that encourage 
ML Constructi °n of new homes? 
certainly not 

Truly we need some sort of rent 
control but we need a system that 
is flexible enough to meet the in- 
creased costs of repair and tax- 
ation and a system that will en- 
courage those with capital funds 
to built the new homes we need. 
The present law certainly does 
not meet the need, nor will the 
one now before the Eighty-first 
Congress. If labor, agriculture, 
and industry can secure raises so 
should the landlords.

To The Editors: 

. . .Why pick on ladlords, without 
considering the conditions that 
forced them to the wall. If labor 
is justified in using this power- 
ful weapon — the strike — to de- 
mand what it wants regardless of 
the cost to the structure of our 
social structure, should not the 
landlord be allowed a similar 
weapon to protect his investment? 
And must we not give attention 
to those factors that caused this 
problem and begin by remedying 

Marion Schwalm. 

To The Editors: 

...It seems that (Mr. Fehr's) 
views and opinions are drawn 
from neither experience or re- 
search but are based solely on 
the famous "Fehr Cerebrial Gang- 
lion." He, who has nothing, would 
like to take money and rights 
from those who have earned them. 
Big-hearted, isn't he? Is not that 
the principle of Communism?

With The Dutchmen 

The Dutchmen recuperated very nicely since their loss to Albright, 
and their triumphs over Susquehanna, Juniata, and Moravian in the 
eighty point brackets shows this definitely . . . LV is slated to meet 
Elizabethtown at the latter's court for their only contest of the week 
on Wednesday evening . . . Previously the Dutchmen defeated the 
E-towners 79-69 ... In one of their latest outings, E-town humbled 
Shepherd of West Virginia 63-50 . . . Larry Kinsella and "Red" Lang- 
staff have certainly come along fine since the season began . . . Larry 
has been scoring high since the E-town game and Red has been tan- 
talizing court fans with his freshmen abilities . . . "Red" worked very 
well with Floyd Becker against Moravian on Saturday evening . . . 
Becker really wows the crowds with his basketball antics . . . Congrats 
to Mike Zajac for setting what Ralph Mease calls a possible Lebanon 
Valley JV record against Susquehanna . . . Mike flipped in 29 points 
for the greatest individual feat any LV dribbler accomplished yet this 
season . . . Kinsella rang up 27 against Moravian and Becker rimmed 
25 at Juniata . . . Zajac played with a fever against Moravian and did 
a bang up job of handling that ball . . . 

We're still howling at the way Hot Dog Frank ran to the referees 
rescue when the latter told the Moravian coach to sit down, after he 
questioned one of the ref 's decisions . . . Frank did something the same 
.in the Juniata football game ... In case some of you are wondering, 
that latest addition to the LVC Jay-Vee lineup is Fred "Rabbit" Done- 
Ion, a recent transfer from St. Mary's of California . . . "Rabbit" is 
from New Brunswick, N. J., hometown of Mike Zajac and footballman 
Pete Ruelwich . . . Latest basketball player being glorified is Bob 
Cousy of Holy Cross . . . Saturday Holy Cross ripped Rhode Island 
52-42 . . . We were surprised to see Oklahoma beat their state's Aggies 
54-41 . . . Rutgers Bucky Hatchett starred recently with 28 points as 
the Scarlet defeated an LV opponent, Lafayette, 69-58 . . . William 
and Mary was slated to start "Spring" football training on Monday . . . 
Not wasting any time, are they, . . . For the benefit of certain viewers 
of Lebanon Valley basketball games, the referees for the varsity clashes

Before knocking off the Grey- 
hounds, Coach Ralph Mease's 
charges played host to Susque- 
hanna University on February 7. 
When the battle with the Crusa- 
ders from Selingsgrove was all 
over, Lebanon Valley chalked up 
an 8 6-73 triumph, despite the 40 
points thrown in by Evan Zlock, 
star of the visiting 'hannamen. 
The Blue and White fell behind by 
two points in the first chukker, 
but a display of 29 points in the 
second period sent the Dutchmen 
ahead at intermission 46-37. LV 
kept pouring it on in the third 
stanza, but Susquehanna held its 
own in the finale, outscoring the 
home team 23-16. Lanky "Red" 
Langstaff took scoring laurels for 
the Blue and White with 18 points 
while the never-failing Becker 
racked up 16. In the preliminary 
game Mike "Welder" Zajac set 
what may be considered a possible 
Jay-Vee record by registering 2 9 
points in the 70-52 conquest of 
{he Crusader JayVees Don Greer 
was runner-up with 16. C.^iock 
was high man for the visiting 
Juniors with 13 counters 

Lebanon Valley stayed m the 
eiehtv point column by scalping 
Juniata 88-78 at Huntington on 
Wednesday night, February 9. The 
Indians, whom the Dutchmen 
cdu-sred 78-54 in Lebanon earlier 
thif season, went ahead 22-21 in 
he first period but fell behind 
41-3 7 at halftime. The Measemen 
out-tallied the Redskins 23-14 in 
the third frame and then held off 
a 27 point Juniata rally in the 
last session by scoring 24 markers

with the fifty stars, one in the 
center and seven triangles around 
it in a circle, with seven stars in 
each triangle, the way you see 
it now. Alaska was to be the cen- 
ter star, and we were mighty 
proud of it. Not only that, but 
at the Exposition the Alaskan 
grand Igloo was to have the cen- 
ter place, and the other buildings 
arranged around her, just like the 
stars in the flag. 

And so Senator Hoskins — he 
was our first Senator from Alas- 
ka, said that a girl would have to 
be chosen to represent all Am- 
erica. She would be called the 
Bride of the Eagle, and would 
preside at the ceremonies when 
Alaska was given her statehood. 
She would present Alaska with 
her new state flag and the Presi- 
dent of the United States with 
the new National flag. It wouldn't 
be right, the Senator said, for her 
to be an Alaskan girl, but she 
must be from the "states", as we 
used to say, and she would be 
chosen from among those people 
who had contributed most to the 
making of America. And then, as 
I guess you know if you've read 
your history book, Senator Hos- 
kins died before he'd worked 
out the details — three months 
before the fair was due to open. 
When they read his will, they 
found he'd left half a million dol- 
lars to the girl who would be 
chosen The Bride of the Eagle. 
Well, naturally, after the old 
man's death there were hundreds 
of rival claimants, and likewise 
some rival authorities, each au- 
thority claiming the legal right 
to choose The Bride of the Eagle. 
The matter got into the courts 
and finally went up to the United 
States Supreme Court. 

By that time the lower courts 
had sifted down through the

poor plight of LA VIE. Its gone 
past the whispering stage, and 
you know it. We've heard it said 
again and again, and in no un- 
certain terms that LA VIE, and 
you'll pardon the expression, 
STINKS! That's the pet topic 
these days. Wake up and get into 
the swing of things, you haven't 
lived lately until you've moaned 
and groaned about LA VIE. 

"No one wants to know your 
name, but everyone wants to 
know your grievances." 

Our names are signed below, 
and our grievances are re-ac- 
counted herein. In fact, you've 
known them all along. You call- 
ed staff meetings to try and settle 
LA VIE'S problems; but it seems 
you didn't get very far. Straighten 
out your own affairs before you 
go blameing others. 

And how about that Chester- 
field ad. Zounds and gadzooks, 
what an ad! If all Valley students 
don't smoke Chesterfields it isn't 
the fault of LA VIE. But is that 
all LA VIE has to offer — telling 
us to smoke Chesterfields? You 
can't beat that last page for real 
journalistic taste. One great big 
beautiful picture of Joan Fon- 
taine holding a pack of smokes. 
Easy on the eyes we'll admit, but 
there isn't much in the way of 
reading matter. It says in the ad 
that by latest national survey 
more college students smoke 
Chesterfields than any other cig- 
arette. LA VIE certainly did its 

"It is about time everyone 
makes his position clear." 

Gads, you have known our posi- 
tion all along. That's why you 
published a new LA VIE. Re- 
member? While on the staff we 
made recommendations for im- 
provement, but to no avail. We 
shall be glad to give an account 
to those who care to hear such 
recommendations. The editors 
didn't. They were satisfied to 
stay in the same old rut. 

"There is practically no coop- 
eration with LA VIE at present 
to aid in the endeavors of the 
staff to put out a paper with 

You have been harping on "no 
cooperation" but failed to clarify 
what you mean by such a term. 
From our own personal dealings 
we know that you have received 
fullest cooperation from the ath- 
letic and publicity departments. 
What are the students supposed 
to do; write the stories them- 
self and see that they get into the 
paper? The LA VIE office is 
crammed with books of journal- 
ism, we would suggest you take 
a little time and browse through 
them now and then. Maybe you 
could pick up a few pointers, may- 

Why should LA VIE get such 
tremendous backing? You have 
not shown the students that you 
are interested in them, and you 
have no power whatsoever on this 
campus. As it stands now, LA VIE 
is just a big joke. It is a rag that 
will take any and all comers and 
get by with the least effort pos- 
sible on the part of most of the 
staffers. Its a cruddy sheet pub- 
lished weekly, bi-monthly, month- 

ly, or anytime the staff gets 
around to it. We could go on and 
on and on and on. 

"There are, however, may, 
many things being said about the 
paper." Amen! And most of them 
are unprintable. Practically all 
we have ever heard is criticism, 
and most all you have ever heard 
is criticism. Do something about 
it besides changing the size and 
print and writing drivel editorials. 

"This is your chance to voice 
them and to see what can be 
done about them this year." 

It seems to us that you would 
be tired of hearing them anymore. 
But here you are inviting more. 
We have continually voiced our 
criticisms throughout the year. 
Why don't you get at the problem 
and really try to put out a better 

The editorial, Change. . .and 
More Change, goes off the deep 
end. You have missed the boat 
completely. YOU as well as US 
know where the trouble with LA 
should weild some power on the 
Lebanon Valley campus, but it 
does not and will not until the 
organization quits kidding itself 

about its troubles. Attack the 
problems from within! 

"LA VIE asks your honest aid." 


We will go further, and make 
the following recommendations. 

1. New editors 

2. LA VIE should be published 

3. More willingness on the part 
of student organization to back 
LA VIE when it is revamped. 

4. Establish at Lebanon Valley 
one or two Journalism courses 
that can be taken for college 

5. More backing from the ad- 
ministration and advisers when it 
is shown by a new LA VIE that 
the paper will be an asset to the

more than $176,000,000 on new facilities dur-

During the next few years, we shall have

Most of this money — the lion's share — comes 
from people . . . from thousands of people in

We must pay a fair return for the use of 
these dollars, of course. And we must keep

Yes 77 No 160 No Opinion 131 

THE students themselves are not 
agreed upon what they want. 
So no matter what is done there 
will still be a lot of dissatisfac- 
tion. For example some want the 
fashion column omitted: others 
want a men's fashion column add- 
ed. Some would prefer a return 
to the former set up — a large 
paper every two weeks while the 
majority want a weekly and gave 
that as a criticism despite the 
fact that is was announced in the 
first issue of the new size that 
LA VIE would henceforth be a 
weekly. One of the most basic 
tenets of news writing is objec- 
tivity, yet one student wanted us 
to get rid of what he termed our 
cold objectivity. He paid us a 
compliment without knowing it. 
A few suggested a monthly liter- 
ary magazine; this is beside the 
point and not what the majority 
want. There is room for both if 
any enterprising souls are inter- 
ested. Several people said that LA 
VIE comes out monthly, bi-month- 
ly, any time at all. This year's 
schedule was made up early last 
spring and has been adhered to. 
LA VIE has never come out dur- 
ing holiday or examination per- 
iods (for obvious reasons) and 
this is so stated in the masthead. 
Lack of time for reporters to 
gather and write news, not lack 
of time for editorial work, pro- 
hibits publication on the week 
following a vacation. 

A good many students object 
to the small size of the paper. It 
should be pointed out that this 
size for a college paper is not so 
novel as it seems to LV students.

Several other colleges have papers 
that size and one of them the 
TOWER TIMES, (of California 
State Teachers College which is 
the same size and kind of school 
as LVC) has for the past few 
years gotten Ail-American or first 
class honor ratings from the As- 
sociated Collegiate Press. The A. 
C. P. every semester criticizes 
papers from schools all over the 
country, gives point by point critic- 
ism and suggestions, and assigns 
the ratings. LA VIE for the past 
two years has received from them 
a second class honor rating. The 
criticism covers all departments 
and phases including make-up and 
typography. On most items La 
Vie has been checked as good or 
very good. While there is still 
room for the critics to say that 
the paper has not improved they 
can not honestly say that it has 
degenerated. The point by point 
criticism enables the editors to 
know exactly what is wrong with 
the paper and what should be done 
to correct it. (The purpose of 
the questionnaire was to find out 
.what the STUDENTS think is 
wrong.) Thus LA VIE has, every 
semester, criticism by EXPERTS, 
the kind of people that write the 
journalism books that the editors 
have been advised to read. Many 
of the things that the students 
would do to the paper are viola- 
tions of good journalism as seen 
by these experts. A continuous at- 
tempt has been made to improve 
the paper with the criticism re- 
ceived in mind. 

For instance last summer the 
editors spent a good bit of time 
compiling a style-book for report- 
ers. The editors did not dream up 
the rules contained in this style 
book. The rules were obtained 
from the books on journalism 
which Mr. Souders donated to La 
Vie, and which the editors have 
read. The reporters have consis- 
tently ignored these rules if in- 
deed they have read them at all; 
therefore when time permitted 
the editors have re-written the 
stories which most flagrantly vio- 
lated rules of good journalism. 
This is the garbling beyond recog- 
nition of which we are accused. 

Student should notice, too, that 
while the paper's size has been 
reduced, so has the type, which 
enables us to get 2/3 of the 
material into the small paper 
that could be fitted into the 
big one. Thus, now, for every 
two week period, more space 
is available than before. The 
most basic problem is news cover- 
age. Reporters are simply not pro- 
ducing. For instance last week ex- 
cept for sports only two of the 
news stories were written by re-

Circulation Sparks 

To the Editors: 

In the general uproar of op- 
position to Mr. Fehr's article, 
"Greedy Landlords," there was 
the maligning imputation that 
those of us who feel one of the 
functions of our government is 
the prevention of the exploitation 
of the economically less fortunate 
classes are Communists. By this 
same sort of reasoning I might 
imply that those who disagree 
with me on the need for controls 
are Fascists. However, it is not 
my intent to make this a name- 
calling contest, but to point out 
a simple fact that seems to have 
been overlooked. 

This government is established 
on the principle of majority rule, 
and in accordance with this con- 
cept a Democratic President and 
Congressional majority was elect- 
ed on the face of a platform that 
included rent control as one of 
its planks. Temporarily, at least, 
the vested interests of the tenants 
(a majority in this case) have 
triumphed over the vested inter- 
ests of the landlords. Now if the 
latter are dissatisfied with the 
mandate of the people they have 
recourse to one or more channels 
of action. They can throw their 
weight around a little more ef- 
fectively in the next election;

MDS And DORM League 
r Cagers To Clash In Series 

With both leagues going into 
their final rounds, an added re- 
ward has been decided upon for 
the winner of the inter-league 
championship. This year the win- 
ner will have the pleasure of 
meeting a faculty team in a bene- 
fit game at the Annville High 
Z School Gym. 

In the Men's Day Student 
League the Senior team has al- 
ready won the championship. The 
seniors won the first half with 
eight wins and one loss. They 
dropped their last game of the 
first half to a very determined 
freshman squad. The second half 
began very much the same as the 
first until a junior team that had 
lost their first three games, got 
"hot" and knocked over all op- 
position including the seniors. 
Their rally however, came a little 
too late in the season for them 
to overtake the seniors. On Feb. 
18 the standings were: (second 
half only)

In the Dorm league it was

Playoff to decide which team

The Lebanon Valley cagers' longest win streak of the season, 
three straight, came to an abrupt halt at Elizabethtown on Thurs- 
day evening as the E-towners squeezed out a thrilling 60-59 verdict 
over the Flying Dutchmen for their eleventh straight win on their 
home floor. The loss at the hands of Ira Hess' courtmen brought

Valley Girls Defeat 
Moravian Second Time 

Lebanon Valleys female basket- 
ballers won their second game of 
the season on Saturday morning 
by muzzling the Moravian Grey- 
houndettes 52-22 on the Annville 
High floor. The triumph marked 
the second time this season the 
Dutchgirls defeated Moravian, for 
in the opener at Bethlehem, the 
Blue and White won out 4 0-3 8. 
The win raised the Valley record 
to two wins, four losses and a tie. 
Since the victory at Moravian, the 
Dutchies managed to tie Gettys- 
burg 5 2-52 in a hectic battle, and 
then proceeded to drop four 

The first Valley defeat came at 
the hands of Millersburg STC who 
whipped the local lassies 31-20 
on the Millersburg court. The Leb- 
anon Valley second team, how- 
ever, salvaged some pride as they 
set down the home team's second 
string, 28-22. Following the thrill- 
ing 52-all tie with G-burg, the 
Dutchgirls played host to Lock 
Haven STC and the upstaters 
whipped the Blue and White by 
a 70-42 count. Lock Haven made 
a clean sweep of the courts as 
their second team polished oft 
LV's representatives, 37-29. 

Shippensburg next took the 
measure of Valley, the Teachers 
winning a close 27-25 decision 
from Mrs. Smith's cagers. Mil- 
lersburg came to town a few 
days liter and the MillereUes 
tripped the local lass les ,34-28 LV 
however, perambulated past the 
Miller second team, as Jeanme 
Hutchinson flipped ^ 24 joints 
to lead the Blue and White sec- 
ond team to a 43-31 ™t°ry. 

The Smithwomen were schea 
uled to meet Albright on Tuesday, 
and Sen a re idle until March 
when they again meet Shippens 
burg STC 

and seven defeats. Previously on 
January 8, the Blue and White 
tripped the E-men 79-69 in Leb- 

From the very outset the game 
developed into a fight to the end 
with outstanding personal per- 
formances being presented on the 
court along with surprisingly good 
shooting. The E-towners were 
"up" for this contest and the en- 
suing battle down to tooth and 
nail proved it. 

E-town ran off to a 14-10 first 
period lead during which Floyd 
Becker's marksmanship kept the 
Blue and White within hailing 
distance. The home team pushed 
its lead to 33-2 8 at halftime with 
Willy Brunner and George 
Waltz scoring deuces as the half- 
time buzzer sounded. During the 
third period, with Larry Kinsella 
in the driver's seat, the Flying 
Dutchmen cut E-town's bulge to 
48-44; outscoring them 16-15 at 
the same time. 

In the waning seconds of the 
last period, spine-tingling play 
developed as the count was knot- 
ted at 57-all. Waltz sank a foul 
for the E-ers and Frank Keath 
let loose with a field goal to put 
the Hessmen in front 60-57. Floyd 
Becker brought Valley hopes back 
to life as he sent a two-pointer 
thru the hoops to make the count

display. Then two frightened eyes 
ventured from beyond the barri- 
cade and peered at me. 

"What do you want?" Her 
voice was weak and quavered like 
Washington Hall in a windstorm. 

"Hello, I'm looking for the ty- 
pical L. V. college student," I 
vpplied cheerfully, as I looked 
anxiously about the vacant, dusty 

'Student? I haven't seen a stu- 
dent since the year began." Her 
words echoed throughout the 
building and a windowpane 
shattered from the vibration. 

"You mean that the typical 
LV student doesn't spend his 
hours among the shelves of the 

"Why should he come here? At 
the beginning of the year each 
student borrows a book; he ex- 
changes it with another student 
and he with another. They have 
an extra-library library. Look at 
our shelves . . . look!" 

I glanced about the long empty 
rows and waved hello to a 
familiar mouse who was tap- 
dancing in the shelf labeled 

' Well then, the typical student 
does do research!" I was quite 
relieved but the librarian threw 
back her head and laughed a low, 
guttural "ha!" 

"Research? That's a laugh . . . 
ha! What do they do with the 
books? I saw "Principles of the 
Draft" replacing a broken win- 
dowpane, ' Statesmen of the Lost 
Cause" propping open the door to 
the deserted Legionaires' meet- 
ing room, and "Elementary Edu- 
cation" is being used in place of 
a broken sofa leg in the North 
Hall parlor!" 

"No! Then theres no one here 
but you? Not even a book left?" 

"Wait! Not so hasty ... I seem 
to recall . . . yes! Follow me." 

We descended the stairs to the 
lower floor. She hesitated, looked 
around carefully and pushed a 
button. To my amazement the 
center of the floor raised, reveal- 
ing a hidden stair that led to 
a dark, musty chamber. I lighted 
the oil lamp I always carry in my 
pocket and followed her into the 
dark pit. A small duck-billed 
platypus brushed against my leg 
and I uttered a small scream. The 
librarian motioned for silence and 
threw the animal a fish which she 
had cleverly concealed under the 
sole of her shoe. 

"Listen," she whispered. 
I strained my auditory sense 
and heard the sound of breath- 

"Where is it?" I asked. 

She tiptoed toward the mold- 
encrusted wall and unlodged five 
large stones. A dim light flick 
ered from what appeared to be a 
small room, but the doorway was 

clogged by reams of paper. I 
cautiously pulled several pounds 
away from in front of the open- 
ing and peered into the tiny 

There in the corner were two 
dust-covered students writing 
furiously on long scrolls. Sur- 
rounding them were stacks of the 
New York Times and Time maga- 

Neither raised his head at the 
interuption ... it seemed as if 
each was mechanically scrawling 
and reading, scrawling and read- 
ing. I looked quizzically at my 
rompanion as she replaced the 

"But who are they? What are 
they doing.?" 

She turned and fastened her 
vulture eye (from the radio pro- 
gram of the same name) upon 

"They are Political Science 
majors! " 

I nodded knowingly and rev- 
erently left the ivy-covered struc- 
ture to search further for my 
typical student.

then presented with a nerve-rack- 
in g opportunity in the dying sec- 
onds, as Keath fouled LV's dimin-

under severe pressure however, 
failed to convert the charity toss 
(which possibly could have sent 
the game into overtime) and the 
score remained 60-5 9 in favor of 
Elizabethtown College. 

Floyd Becker took high scoring

composers, in general, lacks mel- 
ody and the charm that relaxes 
the listener. It reproduces the 
sound of the coal mines, the blast 
furnaces, and the noises of con- 
struction. Soviet leaders prefer 
compositions such as the "Radia- 
tion Suite" or "Ivan digs for 
Uranium," the "Hotashellski 
Rhapsody," or a "Ural Blast Fur- 
nace at Midnight." and "Little 
Stakhanov and his Jack Ham- 
mer." And so Khatchaturian, 
Shostakovitch, and Prokofiev are 
asked to make more noisy music 
in preference to "bourgeois" mel- 

It is probable that the very 
melodic "Masquerade Suite" of 
Khatchaturian, highly popular 
with American audiences, was 
heartily condemned in Russia. 
We here in America can listen 
freely to music that fits all moods 
and tastes: the might and gran- 
deur of Beethoven, the tauntingly 
sad themes of Tchaikovsky, the 
delicate, ethereal works of De- 
bussy, the deep spirituality of 
Cesare Franck and his Symphony 
in D Minor, the strong, emotional 
impact of Brahms' symphonies, or 
the typical American idiom of 
Gershwin. Our music is varied, 
good and bad, unbound by any po- 
litical forces. We can still listen 
to what pleases our personalities. 

America can solve its social, 
economic, and industrial prob- 
lems without making of music a 
nightmare of discords and harsh 
reproductions of undesirable 
noises. Ah! If only our teachers 
would take it easy — then I could 
find time to relax in my slumber 
chair and listen to Brahms.

they can further utilize their po V . 
erful lobby in an attempt to ob 
struct or defeat the proposed rent 
control bill; or they can continue 
to arouse the resentment and fear 
of the workingman (and by ex- 
tension his representative in Con- 
gress) by such action as the pole- 
mical landlord's "strike". 

There are those who believe no 
controls whatsoever are needed, 
that the landlord, by virtue of 
his American citizenship and moti- 
vated by sheer humanitarianism, 
will religiously refrain from levy- 
ing exorbitant rents. I would like 
to refer this school of idealists 
to the pages of history, particular- 
ly American history, to which even 
a superficial glance will be suffi- 
cient to show that when a man 
is confronted with the opportun- 
ity for self-aggrandizement at the 
expense of others with only his 
conscience to limit his actions, the 
"conscience control" rarely proves 

To the argument that the pres- 
ent rent control bill prevents a 
fair return on investment and acts 
as a detriment to the construction 
of new homes, I would point to 
the unprecedented number of new 
housing units constructed during 
the past year, and to a statement 
made last week by one of Leba- 
non's leading realtors in expla" 1 '

* Seniors Select Penn- 

* km Hotel For Dance 

i- * Last Friday's senior class meet- 
ing resulted in the unanimous ap- 
proval of Harrisburg's Penn Harris 
Hotel as the site of the class din- 
ler-dance. This location was se- 
lected after letters from a half- 
ten other prospects were made 
public and almost automatically 
rejected. Of those considered, in- 
cluding the Hotel Hershey, the 
Lincoln, of Reading, and York's 
the Yorktowne, only the Penn- 
Harris was available on May 14, 
the evening previously approved 
by the class. 

Also discussed at this meeting 
of sixteen interested seniors which 
(included, two girls, was the sub- 
",Ject of finances. Glenn Hall, presi- 
dent, reported available funds of 
^proximately $1200.00. Discount- 
ing about $500 for the cost of a 
fend and for gowns, he pointed 
W that the remaining funds 
*t>uld be sufficient for between 
00 and 120 couples to attend the 
Jance. It was next decided to post- 
pone any action toward any fur- 
* assessment.

Production 01 if Play And Annual 
F rmalWil Highlight K-D We kend 

Hart-Kaufman Comedy 
Set for Engle Kail Friday 

The Hart-Kaufman play, "You 
Can't Take It With You" will be 
presented by the Kalo-Delphian 
societies on Friday, March 4, in 
Engle Hall at S:00. 

The directors of the production, 
Bob Moller, Jeanne Hull and Liz 
Beittel have conducted rehearsals 
for three weeks and the culmina- 
tion of their efforts will be staged 
tomorrow evening. The stage com- 
mittee for the play is headed by 
Lee Spangler and the properties 
committee is headed by Thelma 

The play is a comedy in three 
acts set in the living room of the 
home of Martin Vanderhof. The 
family consists of Mr. and Mrs. 
Sycamore (daughter and son-in- 
law of Mr. Vanderhof), Mr. and 
Mrs. Carmichael (daughter and 
son-in-law of the Sycamores), 
Alice, a young Sycamore, Mr. De- 
Pinna, an ice-man who came to 
the home five years previous and 
just stayed. Tony Kirby is the 
young man who courts Miss Alice 
and who brings his family, a 
wealthy Wall Street father and a 
dignified mother, to dinner at the 
do-as-you-please Sycamore house 
on the wrong night. The other 
members of the cast include Rheba 
and Donald (the colored maid and 
her boyfriend), and Mr. Kolenk- 
hof (Mrs. Carmichael's dancing 
teacher). Also listed as cast mem- 
bers are three G-Men, and an In- 
ternal Revenue Department repre- 
sentative who comes to the Van- 
derhof house to collect back taxes 
and who gets very confused at the 
why-should-I-attitude of Martin 

The societies are having a party 
in Engle Hall immediately follow- 
ing the play for all the members 
of both societies and their guests. 
The prices of the tickets for the 
production are fifty and seventy- 
rive cents.

Christian Vocations Is 
Theme of Visiting Trio 

The religious organizations of 
Lebanon Valley College sponsored 
a Christian Vocations Week on 
the campus from February 22 to 
2 4th. The purpose of the program 
was to stimulate serious thought 
among the students concerning the 
duty to make their life-work, whe- 
ther it is to be social, medical, 
agricultural, theological, educa- 
tional or musical, a Christian vo- 
cation. The Board of Christian 
Education of our church sent a 
three-member team to direct and 
counsel these young people and 
completely undergird the program. 
Team members were Miss June 
Hartranft and the Reverends J. 
Allan Ranck and Gerald Zimmer. 

On Tuesday, February 22, the 
Life Work Recruits and the stu- 
dent Y.M. and Y.W.C.A. held a 
banquet in the college church. 
Seventy people attended. Dr. Wil- 
liam A. Wilt offered the invoca- 
tion and the Reverend Gerald 
Zimmer, missionary from China, 
spoke on Christian Work in China. 
Russell Getz acted as toastmaster 
and Dorothy Zink lead the sing- 
ing. Notables present were Miss 
June Hartranft and Dr. Allan 

Ex-Governor Guy Swope 
Addresses Pol. Sci. Club 

Last Monday evening the Po- 
litical Science Club of Lebanon 
Valley College held a meeting in 
the Hotel Weimer at which the 
Honorable Guy W. Swope was the 
principal speaker. Mr. Swope, who 
is at present Administrative Assis- 
tant to the State Treasurer, spoke 
on the changing government of 

Mr. Swope has had a varied 
political career. He has been a 
Representative to Congress from 
the State of Pennsylvania, Gov- 
ernor of Puerto Rico, and during 
the war was a Commander in the 
U. S. Navy and a member of Gen- 
eral MacArthur's staff. His sub- 
ject matter was drawn from his 
experiences as a member of this 

The Political Science Club is 
one of the newly formed campus 
groups at Lebanon Valley. This 
recent meeting was one of the 
several which have been planned 
for the remainder of the year. 

E-town Group To Visit 

On March 16, LVC students will 
entertain Elizabethtown College 
representatives immediately fol- 
lowing the presentation of a Fel- 
lowship Worship Service. This 
program, in charge of the Eliza- 
bethtown students, is an exchange 
project, a part of the Intercollegi- 
ate schedule for this term.

Circulation Sparks 

To the Editor: 

(in answer to Mr. Fehr's article 
"'Reds and Music. . . . ") 

The poor Russians! Is it actu- 
ally believed that Russian com- 
posers take orders from Soviet 
leaders for a certain type of music 
and that the Russian people are 
allowed to listen only to un-sooth- 
ing unmelodious music based on 
■Soviet themes in order that their 
"five-year plans may not be hind- 
ered? There is no basis for this 
at all. It is too bad that some peo- 
ple can find in music elements 
that enhance political and social 
differences between nations. 

Prokofiev and others have 
striven toward the goal of creat- 
ing music for the new broad mass- 
es of music lovers in Russia. 
"Bourgeois" or music written for 
a certain few to enjoy was found 
to be no longer able to exist. Thus, 
1n catering to the new audience, 
Soviet themes and subjects assert- 
ing positive principles such as the 
heroics of construction, the new 

man, and the struggle to overcome 
obstacles are used. In order to 
keep pace with the growing artis- 
tic taste, any attempts at simpli- 
fications in music have been avoid- 

Complexity, dissonance, which 
are symbolic of the age in which 
we live, and the emphasis of ele- 
ments other than melody are uni- 
versal characteristics of modern 
music. I suggest to Mr. "Fehr 
Enough" that he become acquaint- 
ed with the trends in music of all 
countries, including America, be- 
fore he singles out Russia for at- 
tack, if only for the purpose of ad- 
ding a small bit to his vast store 
of knowledge!

La Vie Staff Meeting 
Nets 28 of 77 Volunteers 

La Vie Collegienne held a meet- 
ing a Thursday morning, Febru- 
ary 24, for those students who 
professed a desire to work on La 
Vie's staff. The meeting was con- 
ducted by the editor who spoke 
about the future aims of the 
paper and the need for a produc- 
tive staff. 

After all those present had com- 
pleted questionnaires, style books 
were distributed. A notice was 
made that a test would be given 
on their content. 

Of the seventy-seven who re- 
plied affirmatively to the request 
for students to work on La Vie, 
there were twenty-eight at the 
meeting. Fifteen were already 
members of the staff. 

Fehr Enough 

The President 
Pays His Way \ 

In a recent magazine article I 
Freeman H. Hubbard, a former ' 
editor of "Railroad Magazine," re- 
vealed some very interesting facts 
regarding American Presidents 
and their use of railroads. Many, 1 
of the facts run counter to popular t 
beliefs and are therefore worthy t 
of repetition. S 

For instance, many people be- 1 
lieve that the President of the 1 
United States travels free on the 1 1 
railroads. He doesn't! He pays 1 
fare just as we do. Mr. Hubbard 
mentions an interesting episode 1 
about Pres. "Teddy" Roosevelt. ' 
In 19 05, at the start of his second 
term, "Teddy" received a bill from ' 
a railroad company for over 1 
1118,000 covering the cost of his 
rail trips since his White House 1 
residence. It staggered him, for 1 
he thought the President rode 
free. But "Teddy" paid the bill in 
full out of his own pocket. Be 
following year Congress raised W 
President's pay from $50,000 n 
$75,000, the extra amount intend- 
ed to defray travel expenses. 

Another fact of interest is tnj 
the special car used by the vr 
dent is not owned by the govs" 
merit, but by the Association 
American Railroads. It was o 
by the Pullman Company * ' 
when not in use, is stored 
Washington railroad yards- 
like the standard Pullman cai.

The Play's The Thing 

ONE of the less desirable effects of the sudden appearance of a 
dozen or so new campus organizations has been the strategy em- 
ployed by all organizations in their efforts to bolster student interest. 
The emphasis has been on impressively spectacular undertakings: 
elaborate and expensive dances are a case in point. Publicity-conscious 
groups have said in effect, "Here's the club that deserves your atten- 
tion! look at what we're doing — this is big-time stuff." Generally, 
this approach has worked to the advantage of the students as a whole. 
At least, when they are entertained they are entertained almost pro- 

But at the same time, the individual organization is almost 
forced to cast aside the reason for its existence: service to its member- 

/The Wig and Buckle club might be cited as an extreme example. 
During the past few years it has concentrated its energy on one or two 
super-productions a year. The two one-act plays which it did produce 
during homecoming weekend provide a possible solution to its 

Is there any reason why W r ig and Buckle should not set its sights 
a trifle lower? More short plays — possibly one a month as a part of its 
regular meetings — simpler settings or none at all, elimination of cos- 
tuming and makeup, would not destroy the effectiveness of the campus 
dramatic club. Good, even excellent drama is possible without the 
trappings of a Broadway extravaganza. Philo hall offers facilities ad- 
mirably adapted to this sort of dramatics. With production expenses 
pared to the bone, Wig and Buckle could afford to ignore the com- 
mercial approach and concentrate on producing acting talent. It almost 
goes without saying that as a dramatic workshop, the club's members 
would all have an opportunity to gain experience, receive worthwhile 
criticism from their fellow thespians, and have a whale of a good 
time in the bargain. 

We Swiped It, Too! 

GETTING out a newspaper is no picnic. If we print jokes, people 
say we are silly. If we don't, they say we're too serious. If we 
stick to the office all day, we ought to be out hunting material. If we 
go out and try to hustle, we ought to be on the job in the office. If we 
don't print contributions, we don't appreciate genius; and if we do 
print them, the paper is filled with junk! 

If we edit the other fellow's write-ups, we're too ci'itical; if we 
don't we're asleep. If we clip things from other papers, we are too 
lazy to write our own stuff. 

Now, like as not some guy will say we swiped this from some 
newspaper . . . 
We did. 

From Midland College, Nebraska, who swiped it from the Omaha 
Gateway, who swiped it from the U. of Miami Hurricane, who swiped 
it from the Houston Cougar, who swiped it from the SMU Campus, 
who swiped it from the Texas A&M Battalion, who swiped it from 
someone else. 

Correction : 

In last week's questionnaire on LA VIE the first question 
should have been: No. 1 Do you like the new La Vie? The ans- 
wers were as indicated (19 2 Yes, 139 No, 3 7 No opinion). 
Through a typographical error Question No. 2 was printed twice. 

It seems that this must of need be the last of our thinking ] 
the chilly-season fashionline; with crocus trying so nf j' r . l ~, : a b 
through that last top layer of Spring sod and the grass making 
attempt to fringe our campus walks with its own shade ot £,^ 


We women are justifiably proud 
of the fact that we've sported 
well chosen accessories all winter 
long. After all, they've meant so 
much when we felt the need to 
liven up our precious few basics. 
For instance, "Jeep" Jepsen, 
above, knows the tricks with cow- 
hide belts. You see the black "job" 
smartly ornamented with two 
winged tigers; the tan, more nar- 
row version centered with a gold 
military insignia, and also the 
newest angle in natural hide sup- 
porting an enlarged metal coin. 
Sure enough they could not be 
worn with a favorite taffeta frock 
or even velvet with all of its soft- 
ness, but our tweeds and tailored 
other things actually cry out for 

Next week we'll treat Spring's 
newest navy, pique, and lace, just 
so we'll be thinking early enough 
about what to put together and 
how, for "young man's fancy 
time" . . . ok?

LVC Closes Season With 
72-57 Loss; Win 10, Lose 8 








Dutchmen Smash F&M As 
KinseSIa Scores With 27 


The Franklin and Marshall Col- 
lege cagers proved no match for 
the Lebanon Valley courtmen as 
the latter crushed the Diplomats 
84-53 on Saturday night at the 
Lancaster Armory. It was the 
third time this season the Blue and 
White dribblers won away from 
home; losing on six occasions. 
The triumph ran the LV season 
record up to 10 wins and seven 

F&M made a game of it in the 
first quarter, trailing 17-15 at the 
close of the period, but the Flying 
Dutchmen blew the contest wide 
open in the second stanza, out- 
scoring the Dips 19-7. Leading 
60-42 at the end of the third 
frame, the Blue and White poured 
24 more points thru the hoops in 
the last chukker to wind up the 
successful night. 

Everyone broke into the scoring 
column for LV; but Larry Kin- 
sella, the swashbuckling sopho- 
more star, took high scoring lau- 
rels for the tussle with 27 points 
while Floyd Becker ran up 15.

With The Dutchmen 

Coach Ralph Mease should have been smiling at least up until 
Wednesday evening when he took his Flying Dutchmen to East 
Orange, N. J. to close out their season by meeting the Vikings of 
Upsala College on the Orange Armory court. . . . The LVC mentor 
and basketball team deserve hearty congratulations for the fine per- 
formances they turned in last week, by trimming Albright and com- 
pletely outclassing Franklin and Marshall. . . . Upsala should not 
present too much to stop the Blue and White, but anything can happen 
in this first cage contest between the two colleges. . . . All we hope is 
that the Valleyites end their season on the right side of the ledger. . . . 
Bob Hess and "Whitey" Brunner hang up their uniforms permanently 
after the game in Jersey, so here's hoping their positions can be well 
filled next season. 

In foreign relations class last week, Professor Laughlin caused 
chuckles and laughs when she addressed Larry Kinsella as "Shootzie"; 
the Pol Sci prof said she thought it was cute. . . . Aw, now ain't that 
purty of the lady, huh, La? While on the subject of basketball 
players in class, Roger Robinson's Wednesday afternoon "hygiene 
rendezvous" sponsored Joe Oxley and Dale Shellenberger in an arti- 
ficial respiration demonstration which was quite the thing. . . . We 
guess Joe needs that knowledge since he lives so close to the Atlantic 
beach and you can never tell what pops up on the Jersey shore. . . . 
How about those Lebanon kids getting the autographs from the LVC 
cagers before the Albright clash. . . . The players' expressions were 
really something to see. . . . "Red" Langstaff blushed, Larry Kinsella 
took it like a "Burt Lancaster", and Hank Di Johnson let loose with 
that smile Too bad the kiddies weren't around to get the signa- 
ture of THE Mr. Frederick Donelon. ... All in all, our courtsters are 
all good Joes. i , 

We are still wondering what a certain Scranton daily sports 
writer thinks as to the class the Lebanon Valley team belongs in. . . . 
The up-state scribbler reeled off some comments in his column that 
the Flying Dutchmen belong in a YMCA league after their loss to 
Scranton U. in the coal region city. ... He also let loose about 
o ffciatTng on our home court. . . . Since that time however, the Royals 
haven't blen doing too sensationally and after their recent losses to 
Ealt Stroudsburg STC and Lafayette we wonder if he still thinks 
officiating is the reason for Scranton losing its .games . . . . Too bad 
the man wasn't around for the Albright and F&M tussles. 

ORANGE, N. J. — Upsala College 
handed the Flying Dutchmen a 
bitter 72-57 defeat here last night 
as the Measemen rounded out their 
scheduled court season with ten 
wins and eight losses. 

Becker and Kinsella set the pace 
for the Dutchmen with 15 and 14 
points respectively. The Annville 
squad was holding its own at the 
end of the first quarter when the 
score was 16-16, and again at the 
half when each team had rung up 
3 4 points. 

The Vikings pulled ahead with 
an 8-point lead in the third quar- 
ter and gained steadily in the final 
stanza to take the game. Wolfe 
was pace setter for the Norsemen 
with 20 points. 

Coach Mease announced before 
leaving for Orange that the out- 
come of this final game, although 
important, would not necessarily 
affect conclusively Lebanon Val- 
ley's chances for a bid to the in- 
vitation tournament.

Blue And White Vengeance 
Cripples Albright 59-50 


Aweing the spectators with a 
dazzling display of basketball, and 
playing one of their finest games 
of the season, the Flying Dutch- 
men of Lebanon Valley rang down 
the curtain on their home cam- 
paign by zipping past their arch- 
rival, Albright College, to the 
count of 5 9-50 on Wednesday eve- 
ning, February 23, in Lebanon. 
The triumph marked the seventh 
of the season for the Blue and 
White on their home floor as 
against one defeat. It brought the 
Valley record up to nine wins and 
seven losses for the season, and 
set Coach Ralph Mease's charges' 
Middle Atlantic Conference rec- 
ord at three and three. The vic- 
tory avenged a previous 59-41 hu- 
miliation the Roaring Lions pinned 
on the Blue and White at Reading 
on February 5. 

Lebanon Valley held the upper 
hand throughout the contest ex- 
cept at certain short intervals dur- 
ing the first half; and maintained 
its brilliant pace mainly through 
fancy play-making by the team in 
general. Floyd Becker stood out 
for the Valleyites as far as high 
scoring was concerned, but the 
Dutchmen were a determined band 
and played the game with sensa- 
tional dribbling, shooting, passing 
and all-around ball handling. 
"Hank" Di Johnson cut through 
the Albright defense many times, 
reminding fans of his sterling 
gridiron play, while big "Red" 
Langstaff, along with Raymie 
Kline, gave Albright a tough time 
with their height. Larry Kinsella, 
although he seemed to have an off 
night, showed up well, as did 
"Whitey" Brunner, "Buzz" Le- 
vick, and "Chuck" Zimmerman. 
Bob Hess and Brunner played their 
last home games for LVC, and the 
former had one of his best eve- 
nings this year. 

In the Jayvee encounter Al- 
bright salvaged some pride as they 
won out over Coach Roger Robin- 
son's crew, 58-45. Oscar Mogel was 
the big gun for the Cubs with 16, 
while LVC's Mickey "Welder" 
Zajac rimmed 13.

Two of the nine, Miss Jean

President Pays 

(Continued from Page Two) 

President pays for the use of this 
car, in addition to regular fare, 
when it is coupled onto regular 
trains. For the use of a special 
train the cost is much higher. Mr. 
Hubbard mentions that the money 
paid to railroad companies does 
not begin to pay for the actual 
cost of hauling the Presidential 
Special because of the preferential 
treatment and elaborate precau- 
tions which are necessary. 

During Pres. Franklin D. Roose- 
velt's extensive travels, the Spe- 
cial was equipped to turn out 
work as though the President were 
in Washington. Aboard the train 
were typewriters, telephones, and 
dictaphones. Included in his party 
were secretaries, usually several 
Cabinet members, other Federal 
officials, telephone and telegraph 
operators, radio men, reporters, 
and a few invited guests. 

NSA Conference 

(Continued From Fasre One) 

concrete value was accomplished. 
However, the Workship did decide 
that some member colleges and 
universities should set up experi- 
mental student training programs 
and report upon them. The main 
difficulty would seem to be in de- 
termining just which students 
should be trained as campus lead- 
ers. A report has been prepared 
by Bryn Mawr College, which con- 
ducted a clinic investigating prob- 
lems confronting student govern- 
ments in the state of Pennsylva- 
nia. Lebanon Valley has been 
promised a copy of this report, 
and it is hoped that it will be of 
some help to our own campus gov- 
erning bodies. 

The students who attended the 
International Workshop discussed 
student study-tours in Europe this 
summer, exchange of letters with 
foreign students, and the place- 
ment of DPs who would like to 
study in the United States. While 
it was interesting to anyone curi- 
ous about European study-tours, 
this workshop did not actually ac- 
complish much of worth. 

The most interesting Workshop 
was the one which discussed the 
NSA Culturale. This Culturale, 
which is tentatively scheduled for 
presentation on April 22 and 23, 
will take place in Philadelphia at 

the Met Theatre. It will include 
choirs, glee clubs, vocal soloists, 
ensembles, folk dances of various 
countries, and an art exhibit. So 
far, 18 schools from Pennsylvania 
are sending performers to this 
Culturale. Every school in Penn- 
sylvania has been invited, whether 
or not it belongs to NSA. It is 
hoped that the performing units 
will furnish their own transpor- 
tation expenses. All other costs, 
including meals and rooms for the 
entertainers, will be provided by 

This report was presented the 
Student-Faculty Council at its last 
meeting, Tuesday, March 1. The 
SFC is considering the invitation 
extended to Lebanon Valley by 
the NSA.

was under the direction of Dr. 
Otto Krayer, Professor of Phar-

Lectures Planned 
"The general plan was to have 
each member of the mission pre- 
pare five or six lectures, copies 
of which (in English) were sent 
early in the spring to the German 
institutions to be visited. From 
these the local hosts selected those 
which they desired to have pre- 
sented, and arranged a program, 
often adding lectures by their own 
members. With few exceptions, 
the lectures were all given in Ger- 
man. At each University arrange- 
ments were made for a set of 
social gatherings between the 
American visitors and (a) their 
German scientific colleagues and 
(b) the German medical students. 
Each member of the mission in- 
spected and reported on the local 
status of his own specialty, as 
well as general impressions "

A Minor Tragedy 

ONCE upon a time — way back before the new look and Washington 
Hall — a young man arrived on this campus, fresh from the wars 
and full of ambition for an academic career. Let's call him Joe. 

Joe was serious about his work. He studied as hard as he could 
whenever he could. You see Joe was active in campus activities — not 
what you might call a grind — and held down a part-time paying job. 
Joe didn't study every subject every day — his busy schedule wouldn't 
allow it. But by the end of the semester he had done as much m each 
of his courses as could be expected of him by anyone. He got good 
grades, too. Almost made the Dean's List several times. Nothing out- 
standing, but good. 

The scene passes to the present, and Joe is a little bewildered. 
Last night he stayed up into the wee hours studying for an exam at 
nine o'clock this morning. Joe was ready for it and breezed through it. 
Should get at least a B. 

But what happened later? 

In his ten o'clock class, Bang!, a quickie. On Tuesday the prof 
had said read chapters 10 to 17, and now, by golly, prof was going to 
see if they had. Joe hadn't. 

Still reeling from the blow, Joe went to his eleven o clock. You 
guessed it — Bang! again. Seems this prof had delivered himself of 
copious notes only yesterday, and now, by golly, he was going to see 
if the class had memorized them. Joe hadn't. 

Thoroughly discouraged, Joe crept back to his room like a 
whipped dog heading for a corner of the cellar. After brooding over 
his sorry lot for a while Joe made his decision. 

He quit his job, dropped his other activities and became a full- 
fledged grind. He'd done all right the old way, even in his toughest 
courses where standards were high. But those days are gone, and 
after all studies come first. 

What had happened to Joe? Even as you and I, he was out ot 
step with a sudden switch in academic tactics. Old LVC was going to 
raise its standards in EVERY department. No one had said to him, 
"Joe, we're both going to have to work harder, to make your degree 
from' this college a more valuable possession. We, the faculty, are go- 
ing to have to make you work harder for a good grade." Evidently 
no one thought he would understand that. 

Instead, the unannounced quiz, the most expedient means of keep- 
ing Joe up to par, has made itself the most potent tool in the profes- 
sional tool box. 

Many of our Joes aren't fully aware of the trend. Like it or not, 
it's no accident, and we might as well get used to it. It's conceivable 
that we've been childish enough to merit childish treatment. 

All we can say is: "Move over, Joe." 

Triumph Over Bad Air 

THE cast of the Kalo-Delphian production of "You Can't Take It 
With You" deserves a resounding "well done" from those who 
saw it. 

Audiences at L.V.'s dramatic endeavors, braving the hard seats 
and primitive ventilation of Engle Hall, usually hope for the best, but 
often come away gasping for air, with only the satisfatcion of having 
seen their friends perform. Such satisfaction is a piecemeal, disjointed 
sort of thing at best. Friday night's play, however, was, of the L.V. 
productions which we've seen, one of the few that never seemed to 
drag, and which was thoroughly enjoyable throughout. The enthusi- 
astic, convincing performances turned in by almost all of the cast made 
the necessary discomfort well worth enduring.

Circulation Sparks 

To The Editor: — 

The Student-Faculty Council 
met a week ago and heard a report 
from the delegation that went to 
LaSalle College on Feb. 19 to a 
meeting of this region of the NSA. 
Now, the NSA is supposed to prove 
a great help to colleges which are 
*2 having trouble running efficient 
iBfl. ■ student governments, and although 
still in its infancy, it has not done 
:ioted. too badly. A lot of problems were 
Prea , discussed at that meeting. One of 
— the foremost, which was also dis- 
iei| i cussed at our SFC meeting, was 
•J ' the problem of STUDENT APA- 
kift' THY. William Ferguson, who 
made the report to the group, 
I quite truthfully stated the need 
for a remedy of the situation 
which exists. Follows forthwith 
what might not be a remedy, bust 
Lou I most certainly a suggestion.

Bunche, Jessup Work Proves 
Value Of College Training 


Outlines Factors In 
Successful Interviews 

Bethlehem, Pa. — (LP.) — Easy 
manners and good grooming as 
well as technical ability and 
know-how play their part in help- 
ing a student land an attractive 
job in industry judging by nine 
factors for successful interviews 
outlined by E. Robins Morgan, 
director of placement at Lehigh 
University, in a new booklet, 
"Senior Placement Information." 
Here are Morgan's points: 

"Before entering an interview 
know something about the size 
of the company, its financial 
standing, the location of its prin- 
cipal plants, its products and 
their uses. 

"Be well groomed. Your clothes 
need not be expensive, but they 
should be clean and otherwise 

"Be cordial in greeting an inter- 
viewer. This is good business as 
well as good manners. You like 
a firm handshake and a genial 
smi le — so does the interviewer. 

"Be yourself. Affectations are 
readily discernible even to inex- 
perienced persons and they do 
not give favorable impressions. 

"Sit comfortably erect in your 

"Be at ease. 

"Show your interest in the type 
of employment being offered. 

"Let your speech be articulate. 
The interviewer has the right to 
know what you are saying. 

"To be cocky is inexcusable. It 
is not business-like, it is not 
courteous, and it is not profit- 
able." ■■ ■ 

According to Morgan the three 
deciding factors in Placement are 
character, ability and personality. 
"The value of good charactei 
needs explanation to those only 
who do not possess it. A college 
man's ability will be gauged by 
scholastic standing, Participation 
In extra-curricula activities and 
a knowledge of current events.

Those of us who see in a college 
education the best training for citi- 
zenship will rejoice in the triumph 
of Dr. Ralph Bunche, United Na- 
tions Mediator for Palestine, who 
negotiated a successful treaty be- 
tween Israel and Egypt. Dr. 
Bunche, a Negro professor and so- 
cial scientist of Howard Univer- 
sity, overcame terrific obstacles in 
the Rhodes negotiations and add- 
ed greatly to the prestige of the 
United Nations by bringing in a 
satisfactory agreement between 
two bitter rivals. Even a young 
army officer from the southern 
part of the United States, who sat 
in on the negotiations, expressed 
admiration for Dr. Bunche. 

Use The Better Brains 

It is to be hoped that the wails 
of the New Deal days against 
"idealistic, impractical, dreamy- 
eyed" college professors in the ser- 
vice of the government will never 
be repeated — that is, not after con- 
sidering the fine work of college- 
bred people like Dr. Bunche and 
Dr. Philip C. Jessup. Dr. Jessup is 
another good example of the value 
of using the better brains of our 
colleges and universities in the ser- 
vice of our country. Dr. Jessup, a 
professor of international law and 
diplomacy at Columbia, served as 
deputy U. S. representative to the 
U. N.'s Little Assembly with such 
rare ability as to win the praises 
of Western European delegates. 
He took part in debates over Pal- 
estine, Indonesia, and Berlin — on 
the last issue he bested the fiery 
Vishinsky. And the latest news on 
Jessup is even more encouraging. 
Pres Truman has nominated Phil- 
ip C ' Jessup to be the nation's first 
official ambassador-at-large at 

$25,000 per year. 

The job will 

call for attendance at diplomatic 
meetings at home and abroad with 
the idea of relieving Secretary of 
State Dean Acheson from exces- 
sive travelling. 

Nincompoops In Washington

I located the desk, by accident, 
under a stack of dirty clothes and 
lecture notes and pulled at the 
drawer. Stuck! I pulled out a 
small piece of dynamite I always 
carry behind my ear to break open 
dining-hall Bran muffins and 
lighted the charge. BALOOM! The 
drawer slid easily open surrender- 
ing itself to scrutiny. What had 
we here- Hmmmmm . . . one brok- 
en yo-yo (red), two pencils each 
x k of an inch long (chewed up), 
one eyelash curler (eyelashes still 
attached), one Collie dog (dead), 
one pair of shoe-strings (grey) 
attached to a long handled spoon 
(tin) attached to an old noodle 
(with tomato sauce), attached to 
which was a shrunken head 
(male), attached to which was a 
label which read... " — he said 
he'd call at eight." 1 shuddered 
partly from horror and partly be- 
cause the water in the room was 
turning to ice due to the temper- 
ature of the dorm. To restore my 
circulation I fitted a pair of ice 
skates to my shoes and did three 
figure eights, which looked more 
like three X's. What else was in 
this amazing drawer? One pump- 
kin (moldy, inside of which were 
long lost college documents (plans 
for new gym), five comic books 
(crime), ten La Vies (burning), 
three fingernails (artificial), and 
what was that? Under seven dead 
professors I caught a glimpse of a 
leather bound book. A diary! I 
anxiously puled it from under the 
decaying bodies and clutched it 
eagerly in my hands. The secret! 
I had found it. Reverently I turned 
to the first page and read . . ."Wed-

evening of May 14 at the Penn- 
Harris Hotel in Harrisburg'. The 
motion was carried by unanimous 
vote. Another ballot approved the 
motion that the dinner begin at 
seven P. M. and the dance at nine. 
John Marshal and Joe Dubbs were 
selected as a nucleus of a com- 
mittee to consider prospective 
bands for the affair. 

Informal Dress Chosen 
A question was raised paren- 
thetically as to whether the Presi- 
dent's and the Alumni's dinner for 
the seniors were to be formal or 
informal. It was agreed that both 
of these occasions last year were 
attended in the more comfortable 

Then came the controversial 
subject of the day. It was ex- 
plained that there was a request 
on behalf of the QUITTIE staff 
and the junior class that the se- 
niors assume the expense of photo- 
graphing and preparing "cuts" for 
some 25 seniors whose portraits 
were not handed down from last 
Year's QUITTIE. It was generally 
assumed that the class should 
make some offer of aid in the mat- 
ter in spite of the reminder that 
the seniors' own year book staff 
had not asked for outside help to 
overcome exactly the same situ- 
ation last year. A little prema- 
turely a motion was made that the 
seniors accept the expense. An 
amendment was added that tacked 
on the provision that the QUITTIE 
acknowledge said aid by permit- 
ting the seniors a free complimen- 
tary ad. When some persons 
wanted to discuss sending a com- 
mittee to the juniors to check 
their attitude on this, an objector 
heatedly insisted that such discus- 
sion was out of place, having noth- 
ing to do with the motion. Glen 
Hall, president, quickly quieted 
this objector, but in the confusion 
both matters were brought to a 
vote, individually. Both were 
passed by slight majorities. 
Vote On Expenditures 
In effect the seniors voted to 
(1) assume the $37.50 expense of 
the pictures and (2) buy an ad 
in the juniors' year book, (with no 
assurance that the Juniors would 
accept the $37.50 as payment). 
Mr. Hall, when reminded of this 
parliamentary error stated that it 
was understood that it would be a 
case of no free ad. . .no money. 
But he was also reminded that 
VOTED UPON. The meeting was 
adjourned in what seemed not ex- 
actly a pleasant mood. 

With The Dutchmen 

We were a bit disappointed with the Flying Dutchmen and their 
loss to Upsala, but we're hoping they do better in the MASAC tourney 
. . . At this time we don't know who LVC's first opponent will be; but 
usually competent rumors from those who are suppoed to know say it 
might be Penn Military College . . . Evan Zlock, the Susquehanna court 

star who scored 40 points against 
Lebanon 'Valley in our victory over 
the Crusaders, slashed the silk for 
60 markers against Wesley Col- 
lege of Delaware recently as the 
'hannamen won 100-56 . . . Not bad 
for a night's work . . . Boston Col- 
lege took the mythical eastern 
hockey title by whipping Dart- 
mouth 7-4 . . . There are various 
tales floating around that LV 
might play "this college" and 
"that college" in football this com- 
ing season; so, just to quiet some 
of them: Lafayette, Bucknell, 
Muhlenberg and Juniata released 
their '49 schedules and Lebanon 
Valley isn't on any . . . Kentucky 
is really expecting to garner hon- 
ors this year; they're cleaning up 
in the Southeastern Conference 
and accepted bids to the NIT and 
NCAA tourneys. 

The highlight of the baseball 
season will probably be the horse- 
hiders trip to Philly to battle Tem- 
ple . . . Lebanon Valley's racquet

statistics: Floyd Becker wound up as high scorer with 2 66 points in

but two. . .Larry Kinsella was runner up with 230 markers and he

players did not play In all the games. . .The Dutchmen compiled a

college cage combines selected for . 
the Middle Atlantic States Athletic 
Conference Basketball Playoffs, at 
coaches and directors meeting 
held last week. Ralph R. Mease, 
Director of Athletics and basket-

first time the Mid-Atlantic Con- 
ference has ever sponsored an 
eight-team basketball tournament. 
The preliminary games are sched- 
uled for Muhlenberg College's 
Rockne Hall and Albright's North- 
west Gymnasium on Wednesday, 
March 16; doubleheaders to be 
played at each. The winners of the 
two double bills will enter the 
quarter finals to be played at the 
Penn Palestra, Philadelphia, on 
Friday, March 18. The finals will 
be held the following night, Satur- 
day, March 19, on the same floor, 
with the losers of the Quarter 
finals playing off for third pl»<J

the dislocations and discomforts 
of the students and faculty, some 
to loss of contact with the outside 
world, some to the deadening in- 
fluence of governmental bureau- 
cracy before and during the war. 
(2) The attitude of the Germans 
whom they came to know changed 
during the time they were there 
from despair and fatalistic expec- 
tation of another invasion, to hope 
and finally to enthusiasm. (3) 
German medical education is at a 
crossroad. The profession is al- 
ready greatly overcrowded and the 
number of students wishing to 
study medicine is greater than 
ever before. (4) Each German 
medical school is organized as a 
set of geographically and intellec- 
tually separate institutes and clin- 
ics, each with its own organiza- 
tion, equipment, and library. (5) 
The training, intelligence, motiva- 
tion and industry of the German 
scientists and students are out- 
standing. Given the opportunity, 
German medicine undoubtedly will 
return to pre-eminence, as it al- 
ready has done in some fields.

Belgian Doctor Speaks 
On Dante And Universe 

Dr. Arnold D. Graeffe, Profes- 
sor of Humanities, from the Asso- 
ciation of American Colleges, Arts 
Program, addressed the students 
of Lebanon Valley College at the 
chapel exercises this morning. 
His topic was "Dante's Image of 
the Universe." Dr. Graeffe will 
also meet various organizations 
on the campus for counseling and 
lecturing on varied subjects, and 
he will address the Faculty at a 
dinner this evening. 

Dr. Graeffe was born in Bel- 
gium and received most of hts 
education on the Continent. At 
the University of Munich and Ber- 
lin, he studied art under such em- 
inent teachers as Woelfflin and 
von Sydow and musicology under 
H. Mersmann, supplemented by 
graduate work at the Sorbonne. 

His basic education completed, 
Arnold D. Graeffe toured Europe 
extensively and in 193 6 did inten- 
sive research in British West Af- 
rica under the guidance of Pro- 
fessor von Sydow. In 1937 the Bel-

A Day Student Speaks 


(This is another in the series of guest editorials by prominent 
campus leaders. Mr. Huff, a day student, is president of the Student- 
Faculty Council) . 

A letter to the editor in last week's paper brought to our attention 
the melancholy fact that apathy among students exists on the 
Lebanon Valley campus. 

While it is not denied that such is the case, a study of the facts 
will reveal that "apathy" is not prevalent among day students. But 
let the facts speak for themselves. 

A day student either leads or plays an important part in nearly 
every campus organization or activity. As for scholarship, the day 
students are right up at the top. 27 of the 34 students on the Dean's 
List are day students, with J. E. Wood and David Wallace heading the 

The vice-president and treasurer of the senior class are day 
students; the president of the junior class, the editor and business 
manager of this year's "Quittie" and next year's editor are all 
day students. The vice presidents of the sophomore and freshman 
classes, Philo, and the "L" Club are day students. The president and 
treasurer of the YMCA are day students. The president of the Life 
Work Recruits is a day student as are the president, vice-president and 
treasurer of the Student Faculty Council. The vice-president of the 
Wig and Buckle Club and the vice-president and secretary of the Radio 
Workshop are day students. The secretary-treasurer of the Psycholo- 
gy Club and the president of the German Club are day students. The 
president and secretary of the Chemistry Club are day students. The 
president, vice-president, torchbearer and chaplain, of Pi Gamma Mu 
are day students. Raymond Kline, a day student, is president of the 
Political Science Club. 

The entire editorial staff of LA VIE, with only one exception, is 
made up of day students, and more than half of the remainder are 
day students. The editors and business managers of the "L" Book 
for the past two years have been day students, and for the coming 
publication, day students are again editor and business manager. 

During the past three years day students have leadership in the 
ICG and day students have played a dominant role in the delegations 
sent to the conferences. Al Fehr (see story on page one), Henry 
Hostetter, Ray Kline, and Elvin Walters are all day students. 

Day students play a very important part ln athletics on campus 
(the football team is a striking example) and are in heavy attendance 
at the athletic contests and other campus activities. 

All of this coupled with the fact that day students spend a con- 
siderable portion of their time in travelling to and from school, as 
much as 70 or 80 miles a day in a few cases, rarely less than 8, would 
seem to indicate that if all the day students lived across the street 
from the college, other students could relax completely.

NSA Investigates 
Olivet College Case 

Chicago, 111.— (LP.) — The ex- 
ecutive committee of the U.S. Na- 
tional Student Association meet- 
ing on the campus of the Univer- 
sity of Chicago recently heard a 
report on reported violations of 
a/rademic freedom at Olivet Col- 
lege, Michigan. After thorough 
discussion of the NSA investiga- 
tion of the case, the committee 
decided they found no just rea- 
sons for the removal of Professor 
Barton Akely, a sociology pro- 
fessor, and recommended that a 
full hearing be given by the 
Olivet College Board of Trustees. 

NSA began its study when 7 4 
of the 300 students at Olivet Col- 
lege refused to register at the 
beginning of the fall semester in 
protest of the request of the 
Olivet administration that Barton 
Akely and his librarian wife sub- 
mit their resignations from the 
faculty. The school gave no rea- 
son for the action, but outside 
Bources have called the Akelys 
"ultraliberal." NSA was petitioned 
by 101 Olivet students who main- 
tained there was no sound rea- 
son for Akely to have been asked 
to resign.

Belgian Doctor 

(Continued Prom Fa^e One) 

gian-born scholar and lecturer 
came to the United States and took 
courses in the art of the Far East 
at the University of Michigan. 
Through the five years that fol- 
lowed, Dr. Graeffe served on the 
faculty of Olivet College in Michi- 
gan and during that time became 
an American citizen. The summer 
of 1939 was spent in Mexico for 
the purpose of studying pre-Co- 
lumbian and contemporary Mexi- 
can art at the original sites. 

Dr. Graeffe's interest in esthet- 
ics has led him to an expert knowl- 
edge of plastic arts, music and lit- 
erature. He has written a number 
of works for chamber music and 
voice and displays unusual abili- 
ties as a linguist in his reading of 
French and German literary selec- 
tions. In 1943 Dr. Graeffe became 
head of the art department and 
professor of music at Doane Col- 
lege in Crete, Nebraska, where he 
remained until 19 45. He subse- 
quently taught at Stephens Col- 
lege. Columbia, Missouri, for three 
vears and is now associate profes- 
sor of humanities at the Univer- 
sity of Florida. 

Author, musician, and exponent 
of the Fine Arts, Arnold Didier 
Graeffe is considered an authority 
in the general field of esthetics. 

"Y" Cabinet Discusses 
Displaced Persons Plan 

In the last Y Cabinet meeting 
on March 7, the main topic under 
discussion was that of bringing a 
Displaced Person over from Bur- 
ope and paying for his education 
in Lebanon Valley College. 

The first Chapel service follow- 
ing Easter vacation has been set 
aside to present the idea to the 
student body. It was stated that a 
donation of fifty cents from every 
student would completely take 
care of cost of the project.

With The Dutchmen 

Before we go any further we want to wish a Happy St. Patrick's 
Day to all the Flying Dutchies and especially to the local pride of the 
Irish THE Mr. Frederick Donelon ... At this writing we don't know 
what' our Blue and White courtsters did at Allentown last evening, hut 
instead of Penn Military, we're hoping to see LVC at the Palestra in 
Philly tomorrow night . . . PMC went to Rockne Hall as the Mid- 
Atlantic Southern Division champ due to the fact that the Cadets 
nipped Swarthmore for the title 5 8-57 last week . . . Since Muhlenberg 
did not accept the bid to the tournament it looks as a real toss-up with 
almost any team from Albright to Wagner as a possible winner. 

This is the time various sports tournaments sweep the nation and 
in one of the big ones for basketball, The National Invitation Tourney, 
the New York teams really took it on the chin ... La Salle, which was 
one of the teams considered for the MASAC tourney, lost to Cincin- 
nati in the latter's tournament, but defeated William and Mary for 
the consolation . . . Yale with a 
9-3 record clinched the Ivy League 
title by slugging hapless Harvard 
(0-12), while Penn, Princeton, 
and Columbia wound up in a sec- 
ond place tie with 8-4 records 
each ... As of Saturday's results, 
Syracuse U. looks like a shoo-in for 
the Intercollegiate Boxing toga 
which is being fought for at Penn 
State ... In the Eastern Wrestling 
Intercollegiates, Lehigh and F&M 
represented well the Keystone 
State, with Syracuse looming as a 
possible winner in this, too . . . 
Speaking of F&M, we might add 
that LVC's head football coach, 
Andy Kerr, will be the principal 
speaker at the Diplomat's Second 
Annual All-Sports Dinner on Mon- 
day evening the 28th . . . The 
Dip's started spring football prac- 
tice last week and we notice Notre 
Dame will remain strictly Irish by 
not starting their's until this St. 
Patty's Day afternoon . . . Arnold 
Galifa, the Army football star, was 
elected captain of the Military 
Academy's basketball five . . . 
Frankie Keath, the E-town court 
ace, ended his collegiate basket- 
ball career with 1,872 points; 504 
of which were registered this past 
season. . .Well that's about it for 
this week except that we'd like to 
make a correction and state that 
Whitey Brunner had 147 points 
for the season, not 132, as was 
erroneously printed last week. 
Also, the first Juniata game is at 
home, not away. 

Conservatory Slates Music Festival 
For Two Night Lebanon Presentation 

Conserv Sophs Chosen 
To Play At Band Fete 

Four Conservatory sophomores 
have been selected to participate 
in the intercollegiate State Band 
Festival which will be held at State 
Teachers College, Indiana, Pa., 
March 24, 25, 26. Morton Gould 
will be the guest conductor. The 
festival is sponsored by the Penn- 
sylvania Music Educators Associ- 
ation. Those chosen are Leroy 
Evans, clarinet; Chester Rich- 
wine, cornet; Clayton Schneck, 
saxophone; and Bruce Wiser, 

Tummy Boys 

(Continued Prom Pagfe One) 

were "Shark" Shay, "Elusive" 
Ehrhart, and "Stomper" Souders. 

From the first minute the game 
was a hard fought fray with the 
general pattern of dribble, inter- 
cept, pass, intercept, roll-on-the- 
floor, intercept, step on a head, 
intercept, time out. The faculty's 
main strategy was to confuse the 
all-stars who couldn't discern the 
ball from the various stomachs. 
Although "Dauntless" Donmoyer 
was the announced captain it was 
Mrs. Donmoyer who actually con- 
trolled the team by calling instruc- 
tions from the sidelines. 

Highlights of the game included 
the Philosophy major's chant of 
"We want Ehrhart." (Their mo- 
tive was not revealed; but we hear 
that they secretly removed the 
soles from his shoes and as a re- 
sult the Prof, was unable to meet 
his classes for the remainder of 
the week). Another interesting 
spectacle was the agility which 
"Mangier" Miller displayed as he 
shot baskets while standing on his 
head balancing two all-stars on 
the soles of his feet. 

Excitement reached fever pitch 

in the fourth quarter, and from 
the color of the faculty's faces we 
thought it was scarlet fever. The 
score stood twenty-eight to thirty 
with the all-stars, all seventy- 
eight of them, trailing. The clock 
read two minutes to play, the 
crowd went wild, "Mincer" Mease 
went wild, throwing hips and arms 
in various directions. The FAT- 
TIES had the ball . . . time out! 
The all-stars intercepted . . . time 
out! Ten people fainted from the 
mental strain. The FATTIES were 
under the basket . . . "shoot, 
shoot!" No, time out! Two seconds 
to go. My nails were chewed down 
to the elbow. One distraught spec 
tator screamed, whipped out a 
rope and hung himself. The FAT- 
TIES again had the ball . . . time 
outj No, no, it couldn't be. The 
ball was again in play and an all- 
star shot from center court, the 
ball whirled crazily through the 
air and missed the basket. The 
miracle had happened! The heav- 
ens opened up and a single golden 
angel descended from the sky 
chanting. ."And though the game 
was dirty, you made it, twenty- 
eight to thirty." As the crowd cre- 
ated post-game turmoil eight proud 
faculty wives were seen sewing on 
eight small letters. 

The conservatory will present 
its annual Music Festival in the 
Lebanon High School Auditorium 
on Wednesday and Thursday eve- 
nings, April 6 and 7. Although 
it has been the practice in former 
veavs to hold the festival in Engle 
Hall, Prof. E. P. Rutledge, direc- 
tor of the program, stated that the 
change was made because the hall 
can no longer accommodate the 
increase in attendance. 

The festival is being sponsored 
by a committee from the Lebanon 
Young Men's Christian Associa- 

The Glee Club and the Concert 
Band will be featured on Wednes- 
day night. The College Chorus and 
Concert Orchestra will occupy the 
spotlight on Thursday night. 

The Glee Club will sing: NOW 
RUS, Bedell; ALLELUIA, Thomp- 
COURTED ME, arranged by Ab- 
THE DAWN, Williams; HIT THE 
SUITE, Tschiakovsky; and COUN- 
TRY STYLE, Van Heusen. Miss 
Annette Schoen, conservatory 
freshman, will sing the solo in AS 
LON, arranged by Dett. 

The band will play ESPANA 
the opera SCHWANDA, the BAG- 
OVERTURE. Chester Richwine, 
conservatory sophomore, will be 
featured as cornet soloist playing 

NAPOLI, arranged by Bellstedt. 

On Thursday night the. chorus, 
which consists of 120 voices and 
is the largest in history of the 
conserv, assisted by a concert or- 
chestra composed of 30 musicians, 
and featuring soloists from New 
York City, will present Joseph 
Haydn's " oratorio, THE CRE- ' 

Barbara Troxell, the soprano 
soloist has made many orchestra 
and oratorio appearances. She 
sang in auditions conducted by the 
Metropolitan Opera Company 
where she reached 'the finals. The 
tenor soloist is Kayton Nesbitt 
who is a former member of the 
San Francisco Opera Company.

the arrival of the Philo-Clio

romised an unusual evening of

inded their show and they did 
heir best to fulfill that promise. 
The show took the audience on

Politics Reign As Fehr 
Machine Starts Rolling 

The campaign for the election 
of Alex Fehr to the post of Speak- 
er at the Intercollegiate Confer- 
ence on Government next month 
was inaugurated this week by the 
appointment of personnel to the 
key posts. 

Richard Moller, the campaign 
manager for Mr. Fehr, has ap- 
pointed the following students to 
work under him on the important 
Policy Forming Committee: Wil- 
liam Ferguson, James Gregg, Hen- 
ry Hostetter, Ray Kline, and Mr. 
Fehr. Prof. Maud P. Laughlin, ad- 
visor to the Political Science club, 
will also sit in on the strategy 

To facilitate the work of the 
Policy Committee, Mr. Moller has 
appointed two sub-committees: 
Correspondence, with Charles Elia 
as chairman, and Publicity with 
Pete Ely at the helm. 

Other committees will be ap- 
pointed as the need for them 

The campaign plans of the LVC 
delegation will be aided by other 
member schools of the South-Cen- 
tral region. Richard Musser, of 
Elizabethtown College, and newly- 
selected chairman of the State- 
wide Public Utilities Committee, 
and Richard Evans, of Dickinson 
College, and similarly chairman of 
the State-wide Taxation and Fi- 
nance Committee, are leaders in

amusing farce concerning the ro- 
mantic complications of a veteran 
and his girl. JOHN (George D6 
Long) is a good hearted but fumb- 
ling guy who manages to do every- 
thing wrong. He wires his sweet- 
heart MARY (Mary Edelman) that 
he is on his way home — and ne- 
glects to tell her that he sent 
word to his old buddy FRED (Bob 
Haines) to share their reunion. 
Mary rushes out for champagne 
and caviar and Someone To Watch 
Over Me for the phonograph and 
then finds her romantic notions 
punctured by Fred. It turns out 
that John has secretly married an 
English girl, LILY (Lois Adams), 
by way of doing Fred a favor. He 
wanted to bring her over under 
the quota as a GI bride, so Fred 
could marry her after he had re- 
ceived a quick divorce from her 
himself. But it develops that Fred 
is already happily married. From 
this point on, the play develops

Austin, Texas — (ACP) — A 
feature writer for the "Daily Tex- 
an" summarizes a recent survey 
made by a national magazine 
among college graduates. 9,065 
degree-holders considered repre- 
sentative were questioned. If you 
get a degree and go to work, ac- 
cording to the survey, here is 
what you can expect: 

You will become a professional 
man or an executive with a salary 
of about $4,500 a year. 

You will own your own home 
which will have six rooms and a 
monthly rental value of $84. You 
marry only once and will not be- 
come divorced. You will plan to 
have three children but will prob- 
ably have only two. 

You will read most of the best 
sellers, both fiction and non-fic- 
tion. You will also read from one 
to four magazines, concentrating 
on the "Reader's Digest," "Life," 

"Time" and the "Saturday Eve- 
ning Post." 

You will engage in about five 
political activities which include 
reading about politics in news- 
papers and magazines and discus- 
sing it with your friends. You will 
keep up with local civic activities 
and take an active part in the civic 
affairs of your community. You 
will also keep up with national 
and international developments. 

Interestingly enough, you will 
not arbitrarily identify yourself 
with any political party but will 
vote according to the issue in any 
given election. 

You will have only slightly less 
than four hours a day to spend in 
spare time activities. Most of that 
time will be taken up by reading 
or visiting friends. You will rare-

Let The People Know 

AMONG the bills before Congress is one which may go far in deter- 
mining much of America's future success. Introduced simultane- 
ously in both houses of Congress and known in Congressional circles 
Bill proposes the establishment of public library opportunities. This 
would be done by placing in the hands of state libraries federal funds 
for the creation of a model county-wide public library in each state. 

This is of importance even to those who have at their disposal 
adequate library facilities since throughout the nation about one coun- 
ty in five has no library whatever, to say nothing of those counties in 
which libraries are inadequate. One person out of every two in the 
United States has no library from which to borrow books or has access 
t6 one which is not prepared to meet his needs. 

The creation of a model county-wide public library in each state 
would stimulate intra-state competition among the other counties, 
since the choice of a county for the demonstration is at the discre- 
tion of the State Library. If a state desires to expend additional money 
of its own, the federal government, by the terms of the Bill, will match 
the state funds with a supplementary grant. The plan would be in 
effect for five years. 

What has this Bill to do with college? This: that more future 
college students can cultivate library study habits while in grade or 
high school so that, when they enter college, students will be better 
able to use the research facilities of their college library. For the 
greater number who will never see college, this Bill provides the pos- 
sibility of self-education by means of the knowledge found in public 
libraries. If we are to enter the "enlightened age," we must increas- 
ingly provide this opportunity. As the measure receives growing sup- 
port, it takes on added importance; as the nation moves forward, this 
proposal will lead to improved international, national, and community 

, A detailed question and answer study of the Bill appears in the 
CONGRESSIONAL RECORD, February 15, 1949, (vol. 95 no. 21), 

(The above editorial, here revised, appeared in THE GETTYS- 
BURGIAN, student paper of Gettysburg College). 

Circulation Sparks 

To Frank Huff: 

Mr. Huff, as usual you have 
used the wrong approach if you 
are trying to lessen the apathy 
among students and build up a 
school spirit. In fact you have def- 
initely given it a severe setback. 
As president of the Student-Fac- 
ulty Council, your position is not 
one to foster strife between the 
day and dorm students, but to aid 
in uniting the two factions into a 
harmonious whole. 

If I wished, I could compile a 
more formidable report on the ac- 
tivities of dormitory students than 
that which you included. Merely 
a glance at the situation shows 
that the majority of the officers 
of campus organizations are the 
residents of dormitories; this 
coupled with the fact that the 
ratio of day to dorm students is 
3 : 1 makes your argument, on the 
face of it, ridiculous and illogical. 
Instead of spending time compil- 
ing such useless facts, it would be 
more profitable, I believe, if our 
Student-Faculty Council Presi- 
dent shifted his mind to more 
constructive thinking. 

Let's not devise ways of "pass- 
ing the buck" for this apathy 
which we recognize as being pres- 
ent on the campus. Instead we 
should forget our distinction of 
"day" and "dorm", and build up

"Apathy, Stay Away From Our Door" Say Pol. 
So*. Club's Active And Enthusiastic Members 

By Ali FEHR 

There is apathy everywhere. It 
is one of the major problems bar- 
ring the way to speedier social 
progress. The numerous campus 
organizations of Lebanon Valley 
College suffer from it in varying 
degrees — all, that is, except one. 
That one is the newly-formed Po- 
litical Science Club which is load- 
ed with natural leaders and work- 
ers, which is fired with boundless 
enthusiasm, and which shows 
strong signs of keeping the club 
very active over a long period of 
time. The record speaks for itself 
and the writer knows from his own 
personal observations the fine 
work of this group. 

The Political Science Club start- 
ed its life under the leadership of 
Ray Kline, one of the most active 
citizens of the campus. Ray has 
developed into a fine parliamen- 
tarian and has given effective 
guidance to club activities. Ray's 
ambition is to see all the club 
members trained to lead a meeting 
to the tune of "Robert's Rules of 
Order." To that end bi-monthly 
meetings are held in which differ- 
ent members get their chance to 
"chair" the sessions and take the 
purposeful dose of parliamentary 
procedure from their buddies. If 
you could but hear these meetings 
you could understand why Prof. 
Houtz refers to the political sci- 
ence boys as "a bunch of vultures." 

As the Club's activities expand- 
ed, the problem of raising funds 
became of prime importance. An 
idea was soon forthcoming. Jim 
Gregg* Valley's talented photo- 
grapher (and a shrewd business 
man), gained permission to pub-

lish programs for the home bas- 
ketball games under the sponsor- 
ship of the Club. Jim faithfully 
gathered data and pictures and 
put out programs that gave our 
home games added polish. Other 
members of the Club rallied to 
Jim's side and helped to sell the 
programs. You may even remem- 
ber some of these boys — Dick and 
Bob Moller, Roger McKinley, 
Henry Hostetter, Charlie Pom-

ray, Lloyd Stambaugh, Frank 
Bachman — as they hawked pro- 
grams inside the gym doors. Their 
efforts added a considerable sum 
to the Club's treasury and will 
help defray expenses of the dele- 
gates at the ICG meetings. 

Take a look at those names. 
They represent some of the most 
active and the busiest students on 
the campus. Their activiites cover 
several organizations yet they 
manage to find time to insure the 
success of a new club. It is cer- 
tainly a truism which says "if you 
want to get a thing done get a 
busy person to do it." Attendance 
at the Club's meetings have been 
uniformly good, a sign of consis- 
tent interest in the aims of the 
organization. Committee assign- 
ments have been performed with 
rare ability and ON TIME. Ex- 
perienced hands like Elvin Walt- 
ers, John Nilan, and Pete Ely are 
being aided by up-and-coming un- 
derclassmen. Ginny Werner and 
Marian Schwalm give the Club 
that feminine touch. 

The theme of the Political 
Science Club is "Apathy, stay way 
from our door."

a 73-65 count. Both games were 
played at Philadelphia in the Uni- 
versity of Pennsylvania's spacious 
Palestra before sparse crowds. Al- 
bright, LVC's ancient rival, and 
whom the Dutchmen whipped 59- 
50 earlier in the season, captured 
the tourney crown by disposing of 
Wagner on Friday and then up- 
setting Gettysburg 64-52 in the 
second half of Saturday's double- 
header. After the latter tussle 
went down in the annals of basket- 
ball, the Middle Atlantic States 
Conference Commissioner present- 
ed a cup to the Director of Ath- 
letics at Pennsylvania Military Col- 
lege symbolizing the Southern Di- 
vision Mid-Atlantic title which the 
PMC cagers won this year. Al- 
bright received a similar trophy 
for winning the Western Division 
toga. The Roaring Lions were 
also awarded the prize cup for 
garnering the tourney champion- 
ship, while Wagner's Jim Gilmar- 
tin was named the tournament's 
most valuable player. 

The Gettysburg tussle seemed to 
be going LVC's way until a fatal 
last period when Bill Brunner, 
Don Langstaff and "Hank" Di 
Johnson went out via the foul 
route. Gettysburg then started 
capitalizing on the situation with 
a "do or die" effort, and to the 
Blue and White's dismay, the Bul- 
lets "did." The Flying Dutchmen 
led 63-58 with six minutes left 
when the aforementioned hap- 
pened and almost immediately the 
Orange and Blue began finding 
the mark consistently to gradually 
pull ahead and grab the all-impor- 
tant victory from Coach Ralph 
Mease's charges. Bob-Hess added 
woe to the circumstances when he, 
too, went out on fouls as the 
G-burg regulars laboriously went 
to their devastating work. 

Valley rallied to overcome the 
Bullets 19-16 first period bulge 
and went to the fore 36-33 at half- 
time. The Dutchmen kept the

Mr. Nesbitt has the reputation 
of being one of California's lead-

the San Francisco Opera Associ-

for dear life in the third stanza as 
LV ended that quarter still up 
front, 55-50. Don Langstaff layed 
one up to start LVC off in the 
last chukker, but shortly there- 
after tragedy struck and the 
G-burg five swished in 10 straight 
points to ice the decision. Walt 
Harris, the Gettysburg star, sank 
26 markers to take high scoring 
laurels, while teammate Ross 
Sachs and Dutchman Larry Kin- 
sella ruffled the cords for 18 each. 
Floyd Becker followed Kinsella in 
scoring with 16 points, and the 
Blue and White's frosh ace, Don 
Langstaff, accounted for 14. 

On Saturday night, a spirited 
Wagner combine jumped out to a 
23-15 first period lead and after 
falling behind 33-35 at half-time, 
overtook the Flying Dutchmen 
with six minutes left in the third 
period and remained in the van 
all the way to record their victory 
and take home the third place 
tourney honor. Lebanon Valley 
took a whole period to begin to 
click and poured 20 points thru 
the hoops for their brief lead at 
half time; at times the Dutchmen 
matched the Green and White bas- 
ket for basket, but the determined 
out-of-Staters ran off to a 53-45 
lead in the third setto and even 
though the Blue and White cut 
their lead to three points at one

in the final canto.

With The Dutchmen 

The hectic Philadelphia adventure for the Flying Dutchmen is 
now over as is the basketball season and the final tabulations show 
the Blue and White with an overall 11-10 record for the entire cam- 
paign . . . The Dutchmen mowed down a good Penn Military team 
In their first MASAC tourney attempt, but it was certainly tragic the 
way our dribblers had to bow to the tourney favorite, Gettysburg, in 
the final minutes after leading for so long . . . The Wagner clash wasn't 
as well played as the former and it seemed as though the Annvillites 
just couldn't keep moving . . . Floyd Becker remained the season's 
highest scorer with 316 points while Larry Kinsella followed with 275 
. . . Whitey Brunner and Bob Hess ended their collegiate cage careers 
on Saturday night and we hope Coach Ralph Mease will have two 
just-as-capables on hand for next year. 

All in all, the season wasn't bad and we believe the Flying Dutch- 
men played their best game against Albright on the Lebanon floor . . . 
Floyd Becker certainly showed his flashiness wherever LVC played 
and performed well with the leather w 7 hile feeding the fans with clown- 
ish yet deceptive antics . . . Lebanon Valley can look forward to a 
great team next year with Becker, Kinsella, "Red" Langstaff, "Hank" 
Di Johnson, "Chuck" Zimmerman, "Buzz" Levick, Mickey "Welder" 
Zajae, Jack Honk and maybe Raymie Kline . . . Becker and DiJohnson 
were given honorable mention on the Associated Press' All-Pennsylva- 
nia College team . . . Frank Keath of Elizabethtown and Evan Zlock of 
Susquehanna were two of LV's opponents named on the first team con- 
sisting of ten players . . . Eddie Anlian of Albright, and Mike DeNoia 
of Scranton, were named to the second team while Ulsh of Juniata, 
Werpehowski of Moravian, and Moore of Lincoln U., all received hon- 
orable mention. 

Now that the basketball togs are tucked away, LV will turn to 
the spring sports of baseball, tennis, and track, with practices getting 
into full swing this week . . . Susquehanna University rolls into town 
on April 9, to open the Dutchmen's pitching and slugging campaign, 
while the netmen don't open their season until after the Easter Vaca- 
tion when they face Elizabethtown at home on April 20 . . . While 
speaking of baseball, we notice that Southern Cal has a 45-game sched- 
ule and four of the contests are with the Cleveland Indians — Brother! 
. . . Army has tilts scheduled with the Giants and Dodgers, while Navy 
plans on playing the Baltimore Orioles . . . It's good to have some of 
this, college vs. pro stuff, once in awhile . . . Before we forget, wadja 
tink about da ref's at the tournament? . . . They weren't exactly what 
one would expect at a college tournament . . . But, as Mickey Zajac says 
in regard to the officiating, "You have to face the bitter with the 
sweet." Well, Mick, if the tournament was played in Brooklyn, the 
sweet would have probably been some Pepsi or Coke bottles. 

Nikola and Joanna Graudan, 
above, will offer the third in 
the series of Community Con- 
certs on Monday, March 28, in 
Lebanon High School at 8:15. 

The Graudans toured the 
United States, Canada, and New 
foundland in 1046-47 and in 
1947 toured the Latin Amer- 
icas. On May 15 of this year 
they will leave for South Amer- 
ica on another tour. They have 
achieved fame all over the coun- 
try and were highly received in 
New York following their per- 
formances in Town Hall.

skit were Robert Hofsommer (as 
Farmer Shmeckenbesser), Sara 
Etzweiler (as Mrs. Shmeckenbes-

Shmeckenbesser, the farmer's 
daughter), Spencer Williams (Hi- 
ram the Hired Hand, Lizzie's lov- 
er), and John W. Kreig (Viper 
Vandergraft, the villain). Sound 
effects, props, and those little 
things without which no show is 
a success, were attended to by 
Larry Guenther. 

John Kreig and Lou Fried stag- 
ed a short skit until the talent 
could take over again. 

For a few minutes the show ran 
on "A. C. and D. C." current as 
Abba Cohen, on the clarinet, and 
Dotty Cohen, at the piano played, 
"The Sunny Side of the Street." 

Dotty Cohen, guest star for the 
evening, followed with a sparkling 
piano performance. 

Gloria Stager (as Gloria and her 
Magic Trombone) continued with 
a solo, "Maid of the Mist." 

The highlight of "On the Town" 
was Sara Etzweiler (introduced as 
Hildegarde Etzweiler) singing in 
a most "torchy" fashion, "You'll 
Never Know" and "Put Your Arms 
Around Me, Honey."

To The Editor: 

Let me state at the outset that 
this is not an article defending 
any group of students on this cam- 
pus. It appears that the author of 
the article on this subject in last 
week's paper, Mr. Huff, was up- 
holding the position of the day 
student. If that is true, he is ap- 
proaching the problem from the 
wrong direction and if such an as- 
sumption is incorrect, then I can 
see no meaning in it. I prefer to 
think that the first assumption is 
correct, however, since he stated, 
" . . . a study of the facts will 
reveal that 'apathy' is not preval- 
ent among day students." I would 
ask that the thinking people on 
campus would forget the article 
which he has written since it can 
do more harm than good if the 
students think along such lines. 

I wish to appeal to all the 
students of this college who hope 
and expect to graduate from here. 
This college is your college, all 
who leave it are representative of 
it, and many may not be the type 
that you would prefer to see repre- 
senting your alma mater. The con- 
duct of students in college should 
be on a higher level than that of 
the average laborer. The best way 
to raise the standard of conduct 
of a group of people is to have 
rules and discipline. That has been 
one of the functions of student 
government and because our gov- 
erning bodies have fallen down on 
this task they have fallen concern- 
ing many of the campus activities 
which they would otherwise super- 
vise and provide. What is the un- 
derlying factor of their downfall? 
Apathy. And what is apathy? Ac- 
cording to Webster: "1. Want of 
feeling; lack of passion, emotion, 
or excitement. 2. Indifference to 
what appeals to feelings or inter- 
est." On all college campuses 
there is student apathy, the only 
difference between campuses is 
the degree of apathy prevalent 
thereon. Needless to say it is pre- 
valent to a high degee on this 

What is the root of student 
apathy? That is a question which 
has a varied number of answers 
which all boil down to dissatisfac- 
tion. Each student has his own 
number of gripes and these are the 
reasons for apathy. How. can we

get rid of these dissatisfactions! 
Some of them cannot be prevented, 
but life is not worthwhile if there 
are not at least a few because we 
must have something to gripe 
about. However, there are some 
gripes which can be taken care of 
if one is willing to work a little. 

Now let's all of us stop and take 
stock of ourselves and our school, 
What can we do to make our life 
at college happier and better! 
First of all we must decide to do 
our bit. Naturally, some must be 
the leaders but the average stu- 
dent decides who that leader will 
be so each of us has a task there. 
After we select somebody whom 
we know will do the task required 
of him then it is up to us to make 
that ask easier by co-operating 
with him. If these two things are 
done carefully and with some 
thought then we will have achieved 
something and everyone will begin 
to realize that he previously 
missed some very worthwhile 
things in college life. 

Therefore, let us all unite and 
work together, whether day or 
dorm student. Soon we will elect 
officers in all the organizations 
on campus. If everyone will care- 
fully select the person who is most 
capable of doing the job and not 
the best looking candidate or the 
one whom you think is the best 
athlete, we can start things mov- 
ing around here and accomplish to 
something. The unity of all stu- ir< 
dents is necessary if we are to have ?c 
functioning and efficient organwa- ji 
tions on this campus. However, u 
we follow the trend of thinking r 
evident in Mr. Huff's article we 
will be destroying what we are 
trying to build before we even ge'

Great Books Group Probes 
Locke Essay On Civil Govt. 

The campus organization at 
Lebanon Valley College, "Great 
Books," sponsored by the YMCA 
and the YWCA, discussed Locke's 
second essay "Of Civil Govern-

Room No. 212, Washington Hall. 
Dr. H. H. Shenk, Profesor of His-

this well-known essay. 

Bubo The Owl, Perennial Springtime Visitor, 
Grants Interview; 'The Bubo Report' Released 


On the wings of balmy April 
a small voice wafted into my ear 
and whispered of a celebrity on 
campus. It seems that every Spring 
this creature makes an annual vis- 
it to LV and records the vernal 
equinox vicissitudes purely for his 
own satisfaction. His quarters 
consist of a charming apartment 
tastefully decorated in green lo- 
cated adjacent to the library in 
the tallest Oak tree. By now 
you're probably saying scornfully 
"Oh, the Owl!", to which 
I must reply, "Yes, THE Owl!" 
You must realize that this is no 
ordinary old Barn Owl, no mun- 
dane scavenger of the aviary 
clique, no subordinate Screech 
Owl. - He is socially above barn- 
storming and screeching, he is of 
the family of the Great Horned 

Owl, or as his Latin teacher in- 
sists, Bubo Virginianus. 

I decided to interview Bubo, as 
I familiarily call him, and so pro- 
cured an invitation to his apart- 
ment for luncheon last Saturday. 
I could see no stairway to his quar- 
ters and was pondering my agility 
in vertical ascents when he exhib- 
ited his graciousness by swooping 
down and effortlessly transporting 
me to the fourth floor of the Oak 
Apartments. His apartment' is 
lovely! He has a complete view of 
the entire campus and each leaf is 
equipped with a pair of binoculars 
to keep track of people under five 
feet, five inches. Luncheon was 
prepared by one of his good 
friends, a pigeon named Paul, who 
lives on an interesting windowsill 
of North Hall. It consisted of in- 
triguing morsels of old shoe-lace 
(Continued on Page 3.) 

The concluding program of the 
17th annual Music Festival of the 
Lebanon Valley Conservatory will 
be held tonight in the Lebanon 
High School auditorium. The main 
presentation of this evening will 
l>e a performance of Haydn's Ora- 
torio CREATION. The soloists 
who will appear are Barbara 
Troxell of Easton, Pa., Paul King 
of New York, and Kayton Nesbitt 
of California. The college symph- 
ony orchestra will accompany the 
soloists and chorus. The entire 
program is under the direction of 
Professor E. P. Rutledge. 

The soloists of the evening come 
to the Festival with a great deal of 
concert experience. Miss Troxell is 
a native of Easton and graduated 
from the Curtis Institute where 
she studied voice under Mme. Eliz- 
abeth Schumann. She has ap- 
peared with the Philadelphia and 
New York City Orchestra and has 
performed under the batons of 
Eugene Ormandy, Leopold Sto- 
kowski, and Sir Thomas Beecham. 
Her work in the concert field has 
received high critical praise. 

Mr. King is no stranger to the 
campus since he was one of the 
soloists in last year's Music Fes- 
tival. He is a native of Mississippi 
where he sang as a young man in 
a church choir. It was here that 
he was heard by Lawrence Tibbett, 
who urged Mr. King to make 
singing his profession. Since that 
time Mr. King has appeared in 
Town Hall and sung many bari- 
tone roles in opera companies all 
over the country. 

Kayton Nesbitt is thought to be 
one of California's leading tenors. 
Appearing with the San Francisco 
Opera Association during 1946 
and 19 47, and on the Nelson Eddy 
and James Melton radio shows, he 
has built a reputation for himself 
that well defends his claim to crit- 
ical praise. 

Tonight's Oratorio was preceded 
last evening by a program of songs 
and music given by the Glee Club 
and Band of the Conservatory. 
This year's Music Festival is one 
of the largest in the history of the 
Conservatory. There are 13 2i 
voices in the Chorus, 40 members! 
in the Symphony Orchestra, 55' 
men and women in the College 
Band, and 4 voices in the Glee 
Club. The entire Music Festival 
is being sponsored this year by 
the Y Men's Club of Lebanon.

Campus Miracle 

THOSE students who have not, as yet, got around to seeing the new 
giving so much space to the doings of the Political Science Club in 
ing. There before them can be seen the work done during the last 
few months. A football field, track (and what a track), a snazzy in- 
field, and the beginning of a parking lot of huge dimensions are almost 
completed. Pride in LVC is all that can result from a long look at the 
field. Surely, all the imprecations tossed at the Administration so free- 
ly should be very quietly swallowed in acknowledgement of the prodigi- 
ous work put into this latest endeavor on the part of those who keep 
pushing LV along. 

The Fehr Campaign 

MANY of the readers may have wondered why the paper has been 
giving so much space to the doings of the Political Science Club in 
the last few issues. The reason is not ulterior, although practically 
the entire Editorial staff belongs to the club. It is not for school spirit 
alone, for that attribute does not seem to be much thought of in college 
circles. The Pol Sci Club is conducting a well organized, highly inte- 
grated campaign to make Alex Fehr the Speaker of the Intercollegiate 
Conference on Government to be held in Harrisburg at the end of the 
month. Mr. Fehr, as La Vie reported a couple of issues ago, was 
drafted into this candidacy by representatives of many of the regional 
delegates at a recent meeting. Since that time, the Policy Committee 
of the Pol Sci Club has been making quite certain that as much news 
as possible gets printed about the ICG and Alex. All of the articles 
La Vie has printed are part of this campaign. In fact, in the next 
issue of La Vie (which will appear on the 28 of the month), two of 
the six proposed pages will be devoted to the Fehr campaign. Copies 
of the paper will be sent to all of the colleges participating in the Con- 
ference, and more copies will be distributed at the Conference itself. 
All this as part of the publicity for the campaign. If Alex should win, 
it will be one of the biggest things to happen to an LVC student. It 
will reflect glory and great prestige on the college as well as on Mr. 
Fehr and the Political Science Club. The administration, fully recog- 
nizing the merit of this endeavor in politics, has been most generous 
in its financial support. The students in the Club have been most gen- 
erous of their time. The students in the college should keep an eye on 
the whole thing, for win or lose, this campaign means a lot to LVC. 

Fehr Enough 

The Business Slump: What Is 
It And Who's Responsible? 


Adding to the many serious 
problems confronting our nation 
today is the current slump in in- 
dustrial and business activity. One 
Lebanon merchant remarked, 
"Business is so bad that even the 
people who don't intend to pay 
are not buying." The slump is 
potentially dangerous because 
steel, the barometer of all busi- 
ness activity, shows signs of in- 
creasing cutbacks. And when steel 
is going poorly everything else 
goes the same way. 

It is amusing to notice the care 
with which our economic "ex- 
perts" avoid the use of words like 
"depression" or "recession" to de- 
scribe this current situation. Ed- 
vHn Nourse, a member of the Pres- 
ident's Council of Economic Ad- 
visers, calls it "disinflation." By 
this he means that a leveling off 
process is taking place in which 
prices, wages, profits, etc., will 
drop to a normal plateau well 
within the definition of prosperity. 
"We wonder whether the 4,000,000 
linemployed, who are part of this 
'fnormal" situation, will find this 
game of semantics very nourish- 
ing. Various causes and explana- 
tions have been offered for this 
decline in business activity.

id, ribbon soup, canary seed 
souffle, and climaxed with rose 
petal pudding. But this is not the 
outstanding feature of the visit. I 
had heard various tales of how 
Bubo on several occasions, had 
spread his massive wings and 
swooped down upon several cam- 
pus notables, causing no small 
amount of consternation among 
the best circles. I was determined 
to discover why the learned Bubo, 
who incidentally spends the hours 
from midnight until seven read- 
ing in the Library, should spas- 
modically attack unwary inno- 
cents. His answer was most en- 
"Drrrb, hooooooo?" 
"Bubo, you know who the peo-

She's set "Tabu" on the shelf in favor of a new, lighter cologne . . . 
now you sense "Frolic" or perhaps "Pink Clover" as she passes . . . 
she has a spring in her step ... a gayer, bubbling laugh and a sparkly 
something in her eyes. Spring is here and she knows it, she feels it, 
and can't help but show it! 

Don't hold it against her. All 
winter long she's been aching for 
that first crocus to poke through; 
sitting in warm bubble baths and 
planning on just what will go best 
with the spanking-clean white 
gloves and basket-bag she decided 
on way back in the middle of 
January. The other day she picked 
up April's "Mademoiselle" and 
read the "What's New" column, 
and this is what she found: Pep- 
pery polka dots will be sprinkled 
all over silk scarves; the new silk 
surah dresses cry out for miles of 
pearls; round, snug felt hats that 
roll are good as well as straws 
which spout giddy bunches of 
flowers straight skyward! Instep- 
strap shoes with the Louis Four- 
teenth heel show off a pretty 
ankle and freshly-kept false flow- 
ers worn at the throat, waist or 
wrist will give that crisp, clean 
look. Bags are smaller and neat- 
er, the newest angle being toted in 
the fish basket or chip-basket- 

She's checked her budget, plot- 
ted the course and purchased just 
those wonderful details and basics 
which will bring out the best in 
her. Get ready, get set . . . you'll 
see her soon, all over America 
come Easter Sunday... the best 
dressed woman anywhere. Who? 
You, of course.! And will the men 
folks turn their heads and ask 
the nearest person ... "Who is 
she?" You bet they will. That's 
how you planned it!

overproduced (or underconsumed) 
and that until bulging warehouses 
are emptied we shall continue to 
operate at unemployment levels. 
Reports from several local indus- 
tries appear to uphold this conclu- 
sion. Another theory holds that 
the current slump is political in 
nature — that a powerful segment 
of business is deliberately creating 
an artificial recession in order to 
embarass President Truman and 
at the same time sharply curtail 
the power of union labor. Still an- 
other view blames it on the neces- 
sary delay involved in getting the 
North Atlantic Pact operative. 
This theory claims that our plants 
have extensive orders which are 
waiting for the military phases of 
the Pact to begin. The most opti- 
mistic opinion is that the slump is 
purely a season matter which will 
adjust itself shortly. 

We don't know the correct an- 
swer — perhaps all the explanations 
have a degree of merit. But it can 
be safely said that even a minor 
depression at this time will have 
serious consequences for our na- 
tion. It will make the job of sell- 
ing the American way of life to 
other nations more difficult. It 
will cause our people to argue 
against the European Recovery 
Plan on the basis that charity be- 
gins at home. The worthwhile hu- 
manitarian job of caring for Dis- 
placed Persons will face the grow- 
ing animosity of the American 
people. And, most important of 
all, America's leadership in world 
affairs will suffer in proportion to 
her domestic weaknesses. We can- 
not afford to have a depression at 
this time. May we hope that our 
nation's leaders have the wisdom 
to meet this grave problem. 

Laughlin And Wolfgang To 
Attend Pol Sci. Conference 

Professors Maud P. Laughlin 
and Marvin Wolfgang will be dele- 
gates from LVC at the 53 rd an- 
nual meeting of the American 
Academy of Political and Social 
Sciences to be held in the Benja- 
min Franklin Hotel, Philadelphia, 
April 8 and 9. The general topic 
of the meeting will be "World Gov- 
ernment: Why? When? How?" 

Considered to be one of the most 
important of the annual meetings 
of this organization, it has been 
divided into six sections, which 
will deal with subjects pertinent 
to the general topic. Delegates 
will be present from such far away 
places as the University of Hobart 
in Tasmania, and the Economic 
Society of South Africa, Pretoria, 
South Africa. The many delegates 
will hear speeches by such notables 
as Kermit Roosevelt and Dr. Mau- 
ricio Nabuco, Brazilian Ambassa- 
dor to the United States. Other 
speakers at the meeting will in- 
clude Cord Meyer, Jr., young lead- 
er of the "United World Federal- 
ists," Jamil M. Baroody, alternate 
Delegate of Saudi Arabia to the 
United Nations. 


La Vie Collegienne, Thursday, April 7, 1949 

With The Dutchmen 

We were very much stunned when we picked up Susquehanna 
University's student newspaper in the La Vie office the other day and 
ran across a banner headline which read, "Crusaders Wallop New York 
Yankees; Rout American Leaguers 22-0 as Shortt Allows But One Hit" 
. . . Reading on further we almost flipped out when we saw, "In the 
Yankee half of the first, Shortt struck out Rizzuto, Merra, and Lindell 
on four pitches" . . . Upon advanced glancing our puzzled, bewildered, 
doubtful, and baffled minds came across the idea that this must be 
a hoax since another headline read, "Notre Dame Added to SU Grid 
Slate" . . . That clinched it and then we were awakened to the fact 
that it was the April Fool edition of the paper . . . Which, by the way, 
was the most hilarious college sheet that hit the La Vie desks in many 
a moon ... So, we're breathing normally again and are hopefully wait- 
ing for the Dutchmen's opener with the Susquehanna Crusaders on 
Saturday . . . Before we go any further with the pitch and hit sport 
we'd like to make some comment on a column called "The Score Card" 
which appears in the Swarthmore College weekly, PHOENIX . . . The 
Swarthmoreian that wrote the article thought that the Garnet should 
play less than 18 games per season and discontinue playing before the 
New Year, to gain experience. . He suggested that instead of the 
usual pre-Christmas tussles, Swarthmore should "scrimmage some of 
the better Philadelphia teams" . . . The writer stated that Drexel Tech 
did this and then walloped Philly Pharmacy in it's opener on January 
5; also, the columnist went on to say, "If such a program did not prove 
disastrous to Drexel, why should it be bad for the Quakers who 
wouldn't work so long anyway?. . .What we're getting at is that the 
sports scribe said, "PMC is much better equipped than Swarthmore to 
play a long schedule, but even the Cadets showed in their inspid effort 
against Lebanon Valley, a team that played 18 games but was not 
subject to the additional strain of an intradivisional tournament, that 
they were beginning to weary of the long grind" . . Are you kidding, 
bub?. . .What additional strain, not to mention, what long grind? 

. . . We think that the Flying Dutchmen seemed to have had more 
than the so-called advantage of the Cadets' being tired, when LVC 
thumped the Chesterites 60-48 at Allentown . . . Does the author of 
the article insinuate that the game which Swarthmore lost to PMC for 
the Southern Division toga was so strenuous that the Garnet couldn't 
stand up against an Albright team that played a rugged 2 6 game 
schedule and also had to participate in a division playoff; defeating 
Scranton U. on the latter's home floor? . . . And the Swarthmore- 
Haverford game the night after the Garnet lost to PMC proves the 
fact that not a shorter schedule, but a more balanced or well planned 
one may be needed. . .We firmly believe that a college basketball 
team should handle at least 18 games and should be prepared for 
any possible playoffs or tournaments if it belongs to a league ... In 
closing this we want to state that Swarthmore isn't the only college 
confronted with the problem of having basketball players come out 
for the sport late . . . Lebanon Valley, Albright, and scores of other 
colleges play football, too. 

In some collegiate baseball games of interest to LVC fans, we 
notice Temple slugged Drexel 13-3, La Salle defeated Baltimore Loy- 
ola 4-1, and Susquehanna bowed to Gettysburg 3-1. . .In tennis, La 
Salle was shutout by Loyola 9-0, while Penn ripped St. Joseph 8-1 . . . 
Some of the track scores over the weekend were really "up there" . . . 
Navy sank W & M 104-27, UCLA trampled Santa Barbara 110^-20^, 
Stanford trimmed C of Pacific 101-30 and our budy Jaworsky must 
have been doing flips as Alabama's Crimson Tide drenched Howard 

Before calling it quits, we want to inform some of the kollitch 
kids that every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 10:00 A. M., some 
of the greatest softball games are played by that gym class, and at 
present "Bayonne Willie" Tomilin's outfit seems to be getting the 
better of "Gorgeous George" Fazekas' squad . . . Ralph "1 out of 3" 
Mease pitches, and you should see some of the outside balls he whiffs 
past the batters. . .Boy! .And do we mean outside! . . .Well, so long 
for a while and we hope the Easter Bunny treats you all as well as New 
Brunswick, N. J. is going to be treated when THE Mr. Frederick "Rab- 
bit" Donelon arrives at the big city . . . Ohh! Marie.

Robert Moller was elected presi- 
dent of Kalo for next year at the 
meeting of the society last Thurs- 
day, April 21. The other offices 
were filled as follows: Pat Espo- 
sito as vice president; John 
Charles Smith as treasurer, Ken- 
neth Grimm as recording secre- 
tary, Don Yeatts as corresponding 
secretary, Daniel Fraunfelter as 
chaplain, and Lee Spangler as ser- 
geant at arms. The new executive 
board consists of George Roman, 
Francis Eigenbrode, Guy Euston, 
Gerald Miller, and Edward Tesnar. 

The induction of the newly 
elected officers will take place at 
the annual Kalo banquet, which 
will be held Thursday, May 12, at 
the Green Terrace. 

The proposed constitution was 
thoroughly discussed and adopted 
by the members at this meeting. 
One of the fine points of the new 
constitution was the creation of an 
endowment fund. This endowment 
fund means that there must be a 
minimum of one hundred dollars 
left in the treasury at the end of 
each school year. 

Doctor Light, Kalo's faculty ad- 
visor, who was present at the 
meeting commended the society for 
establishing such a fund. 

The Kalo-Delphian picnic will 
begin at 1 : 00 o'clock this Saturday 
at Mount Gretna. Further infor- 
mation regarding the picnic will 
be posted on the bulletin board 
later this week. 

May Day Skit, Documentary 

The Radio Workshop will pre- 
sent two more broadcasts this year 
from the studios of WLBR. Next 
week the theme will be based on 
"Bride of the Eagle" the plot of 
May Day. Written by Dr. George 
G. Struble of the English depart- 
ment, the story will be adapted for 
a fifteen minute broadcast by mem- 
bers of the Radio Workshop for 
this special presentation. 

The following week the Work- 
shop will present a radio adapta- 
tion of an article recently pub- 
lished by LIFE Magazine. With 
the permission of the editors of 
LIFE, George Ely has adapted the 
article for the half-hour program. 
Called "Intercollegiate Bull Ses- 
sion" the show will deal with the 
many viewpoints of this year's 
crop of American college gradu- 

Last Thursday Betty Ruth 
Jones, Conserv senior, presented a 
piano recital over WLBR. Heard 
from Engle Hall, the program was 
sponsored by the Radio Workshop. 

Today the College Band was 
heard in Engle Hall. This was the 
last program to originate from the 
campus this year. 

Baker Wins Top Honor 
At Chemist Conclave 

Robert E. Baker, senior chemis- 
try major, was awarded top hon- 
ors on Saturday, April 23, at a 
conference of the Intercollegiate 
Student Chemists held at Gettys- 
burg College. Mr. Baker's lecture 
on "The Oxidation of Aromatic 
Alcohols" was capably presented 
and in agreement with all of LVC's 
representatives at the conference, 
the judges unanimously gave him 
first place. 

Following the morning lecture 
period, an after-luncheon talk was 
presented by Alden Emery, Execu- 
tive Secretary of the American 
Chemical Society. The business of 
the conference was concluded and 
a tour of the Gettysburg battler 
field was offered to the delega- 

This was the first such confer- 
ence since 1941, because the war 
caused their discontinuance. Col- 
leges which sent delegations were 
Lafayette, Villanova, Gettysburg, 
Delaware, Bryn Mawr, F. & M., 
Haverford, Ursinus, and Drexel. 
The speakers from Ursinus and 
Drexel were awarded second and 
third prizes in the speaking con- 
test. Delaware will be the scene 
of next year's conference. 

Wig and Buckle Pick 
Next Year's Officers 

At their meeting on April 21, 
the Wig and Buckle members elec- 
ted their new officers. Those elec- 
ted were James Murray, president; 
Jeanne Hull, treasurer; George 
DeLong, vice-president; Liz Beit- 
tell, Secretary. They will begin 
their terms next September. 

L.V.C. Red Cross 
Show Applauded 

April 20, 1949, was the date of 
the presentation, at the Lebanon- 
Veterans' Hospital, of the Lebanon 
Valley Red Cross show. In con-; 
junction with the Lebanon chap- 
ter, Dorothea Cohen, student- 
chairman of the campus Red 
Cross, produced a variety show for 
the patients. 

Featured in the show were Abba 
Cohen as the Master of Ceremo- 
nies; Sara Ann Etzweiller, chan- 
teuse; Janet Weidenhammer, mon- 
ologist; Louis Fried, comedy sing- 
ger; and a skit (already presented 
on campus by Philo-Clio) entitled 
"The Farmer's Daughter," writ- 
ten by John Kreig and Louis 
Fried. The cast of the skit in- 
cluded Gloria Stager, Sara Ann, 
Etzweiller, John Kreig, Spence* 
Williams, and Robert Hoffsommer, 
with Louis Fried as Narrator. 

Some interesting sidelights on 
the production were the wolf whis- 
tles from the audience when 
"Etzy" sang those torchy songs, 
the surprising intricacies of last- 
minute make-up backstage, the 
difficulties involved in Robert 
Hoffsommer's loosely attached ar- 
tifical paunch, the gyrations of the 
two female stars of the skit in 
their paratroopers' boots, Louis 
Fried's almost-busted beak and 
the trunk lid that fell off his car, 
and the way the girls were sur- 
rounded and asked for autographs 
after the show.

Two and A Half Cents 

//A PENNY for your thoughts." Well, here's about two and a half 
A cents worth of thoughts. 

The new numbers in the catalogue seem to have caused a little 
consternation among students. Some of the "thinkers" haven't been 
able to fathom the change. After all, a number is a number. Be it 
sixteen or twenty it's still Economics . . . The elections are, for the 
most part, done, and a lot of people who seem to have deserved the 
offices have been elected to fill the shoes of the dear departing: . . . 
It looks good for next year, because most of the the new officers 
have really got that ol' school spirit — at the moment . . . 

The usual plans are underway for this year's May Day . . . 
People are busy dancing in the gym, songs come out of nowhere to 
greet our ears, and signs are beginning to advertise the venture . . . 
By the by, it looks good to see Dr. Struble get some credit for his 
story on all those posters . . . 

By the time this paper appears, the Pol Sci boys wil be politick- 
ing in Harrisburg, trying to get Al Fehr elected to the post of 
Speaker at the ICG . . . The supplement which appears with this 
paper is in existence largely due to the efforts of the Pol Gie Cult 

It doesn't seem possible that exams are only a couple of weeks 
away. But then, the signs are beginning to appear . . . Half the 
students have developed a slight nervous twitch ... It conies from an 
"exam aversion" my psychoanalyst tells me . . . 

That this La Vie is here at all this week is a veritable miracle 
. . The acting editor forgot to write an editorial (this is his excuse), 
the feature editor couldn't feature anything, our columnist has be- 
come temporarily non-controversial, and half the reporters have been 
stricken with "Virus L" — L is for laziness . . . 

Some of the GIs have been complaining about a ten percent 
handling charge being added to their book bill without their 
knowledge . . . Some of them have found themselves overdrawn re- 
cently, and have blamed this charge . . . Curiosity, which killed the 
cat, prods a question . . . Although entirely within their rights, why 
didn't the library tell the boys?

aches patience and a wholesome

Candidate's Record 
Speaks For Itself 

ALEX J. FEHR had his first ex- 
periences with the Intercollegi- 
ate Conference on Government 
during his freshman year at Leba- 
non Valley College when he served 
honorably on the Rules Committee 
at the Model State Legislature 
held in Harrisburg 17-20 April, 
1947 ! . His outstanding work with 
this group won for him the respect 
and commendations of his col- 
leagues, and. his position in regard 
to the I. C. G. was firmly 

In his sophomore year Al con- 
tinued his climb up the ladder of 
intercollegiate political circles and 
as a reward for his engulfing in- 
terest and enthusiasm, mixed with 
many hours of hard work he se- 
cured the position of chairman of 
the statewide Labor Committee 
in the Model National Political 
Convention held in Philadelphia 
8-11 April, 1948. The result of 
his efforts and achievements while 
serving in this capacity manifested 
itself in his appointment as 
Regional Director of the South- 
Central region of the Intercollegi- 
ate Conference on Government. 

Al is now approaching the top 
rung of the collegiate political 
ladder. This year he will attempt 
to fulfill the ambition of each 
member of I.C.G. — to be chosen 
state chairman for an all-state 
convention. With the unanimous 
approval of the Political Science 
Club of Lebanon Valley College 
his name has been placed in nom- 
ination for this high office. 

Al has served the I. C. G. well 
and faithfuly. His reward is on 
the horizon. 

Leadership Evidenced In Career 

Aspirant Attains Academic 
Honors & Union Presidency 

ALEX J. FEHR, a candidate for 
the post of Speaker of the In- 
tercollegiate Conference on Gov- 
ernment is more mature than the 
average college student: he was 
born in 1916. Although born In 
Bethlehem, nearly all of his life 
has been spent in Lebanon, Penna. 

Fehr attended the Lebanon pub- 
lic schools and was graduated 
with honors in 1933. 

The period between high school 
graduation and college entrance 
served him well in several re- 
spects. During these years he ob- 
tained varied experience in sev- 
eral fields. He has held positions 
as bookkeeper, textile printer, ac- 
countant, steelworker, salesman 
and electric welder. 

When the nation's defense pro- 

gram was put into operation in 
1941, Fehr worked as a welder at 
the Philadelphia Navy Yard. 
While thus employed he became 
interested in local labor union 
activities. Here his customary 
talents as leader were displayed 
by his appointment and service 
to numerous minor positions. 
Finally he was elected to the of- 
fice of president of the local 
union, a post he held during his 
last six months of service at the 
navy yard. This office led to valu- 
able experience as a leader in com- 
mittee meeting and large assem- 

Later he served in the Army 
Air Force. As to his military 
record, he modestly states that 
he fought his hardest campaign 
while on sage-brush patrol dur- 
ing the "Battle of Texas." 

In the fall of 1946, after his 
discharge, Fehr enrolled at Leb- 
anon Valley College. At present a 

member of the Junior class, he 
has been on the Dean's List con- 
sistently. Within three years he 
has established notable college 
record. He is a member of Pi 
Gamma Mu, the national social 
science honor society. He serves 
on many committees, belongs to 
numerous organizations, and is a 
general promoter of enthusiasm 
among the students. 

Fehr is a charter member of 
the Lebanon Valley College Po- 
litical Science club. 

As a special editor of La Vie 
Collegienne, the college newspa- 
per, Fehr contributes a weekly 
column entitled "Fehr Enough," 
in which he analyzes current 
events, local, national and inter- 

Fehr is married and the father 
of two children, a five-year-old 
daughter and a five-months-old 
son. His home is at 404 Walnut 
St., Lebanon. 

ALEX J. FEHR, Lebanon 
Valley College's candidate for

House, is shown above deliver-

Committee, of which he was

political convention in Phila- 

Annual Conference Target 
Of Political Science Club 

ALTHOUGH the formal organ- 
ization of a Political Science 
Club at Lebanon Valley has only 
taken place in this school year, 
there had been an unorganized 
group of political scientists on the 
campus for the past two years. 

Perhaps the first interest mani- 
fested by the students in the di- 
rection of politics was the result 
of the addition to the faculty of 
Prof. Maud P. Laughlin. Among 
her many conributions to the aca- 
demic and social life of the Col- 
lege, Prof. Laughlin stimulated all 
students with whoixi she came in 
contact. Through this stimulation 
she sowed the seed of the Political 
Science Club. 

Last October Henry Hostetter 
sounded the call. It was answered 
not only by the delegates to the 
past two Conferences, but by 
many other interested persons. 
Thus the Political Science Club 
came into being as an officially 
recognized campus activity. 

The Club elected as its first 
president, Ray Kline. Under him 
were: Bob Moller, vice-president; 
Marion Schwalm, secretary; Char- 
les Pomraning, treasurer; and 
Roger McKinnly, parliamentarian. 

After the adoption of a consti- 
tution, the club at its bi-monthly 
meetings gave instruction in par- 
liamentary procedure, the instruc- 
tion implemented by actual prac- 
tice by members of the club. 

In February the Club held its 
first combined social and business 
meeting. At the Hotel Weimer, in 
Lebanon, the Hon. Guy Swope, 
former Governor of Puerto Rico, 
addressed the group, giving them 
an inside view of government and 
foreign affairs. 

Aside from being a group of 
outspoken social scientists, the 
members of the Club have shown 
considerable ability in improving 

the status of their bank balance. 
Jim Gregg contributed the scheme 
of selling programs at LVC bas- 
ketball games. This scheme netted 
the Club over $100, at the same 
time putting to good use the more 
vociferous talents of certain club 
members by having them hawk 
programs at the games. 

On the whole the first year of 
the Club's activity has been ex- 
tremely successful. Its further 
success hinges on the outcome of 
this year's campaign. 

A Report From 
The President 


WHEN the Political Science Club 
of Lebanon Valley College was 
formed in October, 19 48, every- 
one concerned with the project 
was dubious as to how successful 
the new organization would be. As 
student apathy is evident on the 
LVC campus (as elsewhere) it was 
thought by most people that there 
would be the usual initial interest, 
followed by that typical decline 
in activity and membership. 

However, to the surprise of all 
concerned, the reverse proved 
true. The trying days were during 
the first month, when the unat- 
tractive but necessary task of con- 
stitutional organization was un- 
dertaken and completed, without 
the customary period of inactivity 
weeks after, as was expected. 

Indeed, after the groundwork 
was laid, the club grew in a very 
short time into the most kinetic 
of all clubs on campus. Interest 
and enthusiasm flared at every 
angle. This was not due to the ef- 
forts of any one person; it was 
the concerted action of an in- 
tegrated group striving for set 
goals enumerated when the club 
was in its infancy. 

Mr. Fehr is our product, but he 
is trained to serve you. I ask you 
to give him your consideration. 

Meet The L VC Delegates . . j 

Lebanon Valley Delegation 
Prominent In Past ICGS 

has been action in the Inter- 
collegiate Conference on Govern- 
ment since 19 47. In that year 
when the organization sponsored a 
Model State Legislature in Harris- 
burg the L. V. delegation made it- 
self known and the ability of the 
group was demonstrated when it 
passed its famed "Blight Bill." 
The timeliness and uniqueness of 
the bill combined with the manner 
in which it was proposed and en- 
dorsed by the Lebanon Valley 
group won recognition not only for 
delegates but also for the college. 

The following year the I. C. G. 
sponsored a Model National Po- 
litical Convention in Philadelphia 
to which a larger and more ex- 
perienced delegation was sent. 
Lebanon Valley was again con- 
spicuous in its presence due to the 
excellent work of Al Fehr as chair- 
man of the Labor Committee, and 
the manner in which the delegates 
voiced their opinions in the com- 
mittees and succeeded in having 
their bills written into the various 
planks of the platform, which was 
ultimately endorsed by the entire 

This year the Political Science 
Club, a new organization on the 
L. V. campus with one of its aims 
being to prepare the members as 
participants to the I.C.G. annual 
meeting, is sending the maximum 
number of representatives to the 
conference. Having as a backbone 
seasoned veterans of these affairs 
and being well-versed in parlia- 
mentary procedure, the club is 
anxiously anticipating another 
successful conference. They have 
unanimously backed Alex Fehr for 
the position of speaker of this 
meeting and have been planning 
long and hard to bring about his

To the Editor: 

Lebanon Valley College students 
are opening their hearts and their 
purse strings to donate money to 
be used for some displaced person 
in Europe who is a student like 
themselves, but who, unlike them, 
has no college to attend or no 
funds to enroll in the over-crowded 
and under-staffed college near him. 
They were asked to support this 
project in a stirring and challeng- 
ing speech by Professor Marvin 
Wolfgang on April 19 in a Chapel 
service, and it is safe to say that a 
great majority of the students 
pledged one doller or more to the 
worthy cause. 

Most of the students who con- 
tributed to the fund thought that 
It was a selfless thing to do. They 
felt, too, that if the shoe were on 
the other foot, they would deeply 
appreciate a helping hand from 
across the ocean to assist them 
through college. So they pledged 
their dollar. Besides the noble as- 
pect of the donating, the students 
felt curious about seeing a dis- 
placed person in Lebanon Valley 
College, how he would react to 
our ways of doing things, and how 
Q e would compare scholastically 
w ith them. And some of those 
contributing had memories of 
friendships in the far flung cor- 
ners of the world, of buddies who 
wed for world peace, or of the sad 
aces of the youth of Germany, 
Italy, France, and other ravaged 
^uropean countries who stared at 
them with blank expressions of de- 
pression and despair. 

Now this is a proper thing to do. 
lt is indeed, as Professor Wolf- 
ing stated, an opportunity to 
| lv e some bewildered student in 
.Urope an experience of an actual 
J e mocratic act. It will back up, in 
ls small way, some of the high 
funding principles which we 
Jower on the Continent. It will 
ontribute, it is hoped, in its own 
J^all way towards the achieve- 

ent of our national policy of 
heading democratic principles 
; e r the earth. So the students 

Probably over-subscribe the 
aj - set for them, and with the 
ftiav° f tlle administra tion, they will 
4io ^ Possible for perhaps two 
splaced persons to study in this 
01 le ge . 

thf° far you might ask, "What is 
a 18 guy trying to say? Everybody 

»oth 6S with this wnole idea and 

been said in this letter." My 
^ a is this, expressed purely for 
%r, Sake ot discussion and not in a 
C ging wa y toward the drive 
k displaced student fund: 

*0rn don 't we start a drive for 
kj? e Poor American high school 
e j, w ho would love to study in any 
bw ege anywhere if he had the 
*r e . to do so? I know that you 
going to say that there are 

ln g new or contradictory has 

plenty of scholarships available in 
the United States for the really 
deserving students, and that col- 
leges have set aside special funds 
for students who have a high 
scholastic record and who meet the 
| academic requirements of their 
systems. Yet you and I know sev- 
eral people at home who are col- 
lege material and are not in col- 
lege, and who will not get there 
because of financial reasons. Of 
course they might win a competi- 
tive scholarship, but even that aid 
would be insufficient to see them 
through four years of college. 
Furthermore, even should they 
graduate from a liberal arts 
school, what practical use would 
their college training have for 
them? Very little, I think we all 
agree, in so far as a remumerative 
position is concerned. And so they 
do not dare to lose four years of 
work for money to go to school 
four years. But to secure its gradu- 
ates a remunerative position is not 
the primary function of a liberal 
arts school. Rather, an acquain- 
tance with the world's culture and 
civilization, understanding to meet 
life's problems, and a background 
of experience to extract from liv- 
ing the little enjoyables and plea- 
sures that go towards the realiza- 
tion of a full and happy existance 
— these are the capacities which a 
liberal arts education hopes to 
develop. And often, in this pro- 
cess of educating for a fuller life, 
a great or near-great artist, writer, 
teacher, or scholar is discovered, 
who through his unique under- 
standing of life gives further en- 
richment to all of us. This college 
experience, then, is a pretty nice 
thing to be exposed to, and those 
acquaintances of ours who are un- 
able to enjoy it because of financial 
problems certainly would benefit 
from the same opportunities we 

This, then, is the reason for this 
letter: Let's see if there is not 
some citizen of this great democra- 
cy we are trying to sell to the 
world — maybe he is in your home 
town or in mine — who would be 
worthy of a scholarship to this 
college from the student body, and 
who could walk through the halls 
of LVC with the DP student, both 
realizing the expression of our fa- 
vorite democratic principles.

Rumble . . . crash . . . splash! and it's April again. We all wish 
we had webbed feet on these mud-puddle days, but rather than put up 
with mud squirting from out shoe lace holes we revert to boots, which 
aren't a bad substitute. Because we aren't lucky enough to have the 
rain run off our backs with the ducks, up goes the 'bumper-shoot' but 

why sound so sad about these wet, 
blue days? Don't newly sprinkled 
sidewalks have a charm all their 
own . . . and then too, there's that 
nice clean smell, fresh as an 
angel's wink, right after a sur- 
prise shower. The delicious frag- 
rance which comes from woven 
cherry, plum and apple blossom 
blooms, we must admit, beats even 
the wonderfulness of our newest 

Clean, white gloves which have 
had a date with the wash tub on 
every night before a rainy day, 
make mud puddles look ashamed 
for being so drab. An attractive 
rain coat, and there no getting 
around it, will always give our 
spirits an extra lift. April down- 
pours can actually be hoped for 
if a shopping jaunt claims a smart 
corduroy raincoat like the one pic- 
tured here. It's strictly military in 
lines, the back having soft, below- 
the-waist folds, and a two button 
belt. The two front pockets will 
hold anything from small note- 
books to the French novel the 
prof insists will add to your cul- 
ture, or something or other, al- 

though, you can't see that now. 
The coat's lining is soft and slip- 
pery for easy taking off and hurry- 
ing on. The sleeves are roomy and 
the collar traditionally smart. All 
set now? You bet you are . . . an' 
the ducks will have nuthin on you! 

L.V.C. Falls To Prowess Of F. & M. 
In First Defeat Of Season 

Coach Ralph Mease's Lebanon Valley tossers went down to 
defeat for the first time this season as the Flying Dutchmen bowed 
to Franklin & Marshall College 4-3 on Monday afternoon at Lan- 
caster The loss set the Blue and White record at 2-1 thus far. Tues- 
day the Dutchmen were scheduled to meet Moravian and onSat- 
urdav they are slated to face St. Joseph, both at home. 

Once again Fred Fore was given the starting mound assign- 
ment for LVC and for the first time this season he failed to record 
a win Fore, who faced the Diplomat star hurler, Bob Forstburg 
was nicked for six hits while he walked the same number and 
struck out four. Forstburg didn't exactly live up to the newspaper 
writeups of his ability and was tagged for seven hits with nine walks 
and six strikeouts recorded for him. 

W'ally Hess paced the Dutchmen batters with two singles for 
five times at bat while Firstbaseman "Chuck" Zimmerman pounded 
out a double. Clea-up man Potteiger led the way for the home team 
with three hits including a triple. 

Forstburg registered the winning tally after he got on base via 
a double and raced home on Weitzel's single, to break a three-all

What to say — 

When you are given an ob- 
jective test: "It doesn't let you 
express yourself." 

When you are given an essay 
test: "It's so vague. You don't 
know what is expected." 

When you are given minor 
tests: "Why not give a few big 
ones? This keeps you on edge 
all the time." 

When you are given a few 
major tests: "Too much de- 
pends on each one." 

When you are given no tests: 
"It's not fair. How can he pos- 
sibly judge what we know?" 

When every part of the sub- 
ject is taken up in class: "Oh, 
he just follows the book." 

When you are asked to study 
a part of the subject by your-

When the course is in lecture 
form: "We never get a chance

When the class consists of an 
informal lecture and discus-

Dutchman Nine Whomps Susquehanna; 
Fore, Lukens Lead Win Over E-Town 

The Lebanon Valley College 
baseball nine opened its diamond 
season in fine style on Saturday, 
April 9, by trouncing Susquehanna 
University to the tune of 8-4 at the 
local college field. On Wednesday, 
April 20, the Flying Dutchmen out- 
classed Elizabethtown College in a 
tight game to win 1-0 in their sec- 
ond home contest of the season. 

The latter game was as close to 
a major league story-book finish 
as a collegiate baseball game can 
get. The visiting hurler, Walter, 
had a no-hit, no-run mound 
achievement going until the last 
of the ninth when Bobby Hess got 
on base via shortstop Snavely's 
error on Hess' slam. After Chuck 
Zimmerman struck out and Hank 
DiJohnson popped up to the catch- 
er, Walt Hess drew a walk and 
then Norm Lukens came to bat. 
Lukens proved the hero of the fray 
when he slapped out a single which 
scored Bobby Hess with the win- 
ning run that broke up Walters 
no-hit, no-run attempt. Fred Fore 
twirled the route for LVC allow- 
ing but three scattered hits, while 
striking out ten E-towners and 
gave up two bases on balls. Wal- 
ter also whiffed ten and walked 
three men. 

Against Susquehanna the Blue 
and White pounded out fourteen 
hits with first-baseman Chuck Zim- 
merman leading the way by 
scratching the Crusader hurlers 
for three bingles, while Norm Luk- 
ens proved a potent batter in this 
game too, as he slugged out a 
triple. DiJohnson and Neal Woll 
accounted for a double each. Wis- 
singer was the big gun for the 
visitors since he hit two for four. 

Fred Fore flipped the first seven 
innings for the victor's and gave 
way to Mickey Zajac after the as- 
surance of his win. Fore struck 
out eight Crusaders while Zajac 
set down three. The Selinsgrovers 
used two hurlers with starter Tom 
Wallace being charged with the 
loss. George Phillips relieved him 
and finished up the game.

The Radio Workshop held a 
meeting on April 2 7, for the pur- 
pose of electing new officers for 
next year. It was decided to elim- 
inate the positions of President, 
Vice-President, and Secretary since 
there has proved to be no actual 
need of this type of officer in the. 
organization. Instead, the menw 
bers present installed a board of* 
directors, whose job it will be to 
plan and execute the proceedings 
of the Workshop next year. Al 
Moriconi and Betty Bakely were 
elected permanent members of the 
board for 1949-50, and Virginia 
Ann Wagner and Glenn Woods 
were made temporary members for 
the first semester of next year- 
Plans were announced for the pro- 
duction of a May Day broadcast 
under the charge of Glenn Woods, 
which was scheduled for this 
morning. It was also announced 
that George Ely had adapted an

1(6 Delegation Puts LYC On Penna. 
College Map; Coalition Defeats Fehr 

LVC's 28-man delegation to the Intercollegiate Conference on 
Government in Harrisburg last weekend has earned valuable recogni- 
tion for this college throughout Pennsylvania collegiate circles. The 
colorful and intensive nature of the "Fehr for Speaker" campaign re- 
ceived acclaim from impartial observers, including several members 
of the State Legislature, then in 


Henry Hostetter, chairman of 
the LVC delegation, said that in 
the legislative aspects of the Con- 
ference, Lebanon Valley more than 
held its own, especially in commit- 
tee work. Two bills were brought 
out of committee, largely through 
parliamentary tactics, even though 
Lebanon Valley expended most of 
of its bargaining power on the 
Speakership campaign. 

The most significant victory for 
Lebanon Valley, in the opinion of 
Maud P. Laughlin, faculty adviser 
occurred in the faculty screening 
of candidates. Fehr was one of 
•three candidates chosen from a 
ipanel of eight by faculty advis- 
ers. He received 19 of a possible 
22 votes in this phase. 

A regional coalition between the 
Philadelphia and Pittsburgh areas 
and a low total vote combined to 
defeat Fehr in the contest for 
Speaker of the Conference, accord- 
ing to a statement by Richard Mol- 
ler, campaign manager. 

"Most of the delegates with 
whom we spoke," Moller said, 
"agreed that the Fehr campaign it- 
self was politically sound and that 
it was a unique experience in the 
art of politics for other delega- 

Lewis Manderino, from St. Vin- 
cent's College in the Pittsburgh 
area, was elected speaker. The 
LVC delegation agreed that he 
demonstrated great ability as a 
speaker and parliamentarian. 

"On the credit side of the led- 
ger," Moller said, "our campaign 
put LVC and Alex Fehr in the ICG 
spotlight for this session. We are a 
force to be reckoned with in future 

The campaign extended 
throughout the downtown Harris- 
burg area and into the State Legis- 
lature. With ICG delegates ming- 
ling with members of the State 
Legislature in hotels and restau-

ly, after the old man's death there 
were hundreds of rival claimants, 
and likewise some rival author-

legal right to choose The Bride of 
the Eagle. The matter got into the 
courts and finally went up to the 
United State Supreme Court. 

"By that time the lower courts 
had sifted down through the ranks 
so there were only a few girls still 
in the running. The Court set a 
day for the hearings, and each 
group that claimed descent from 
the early settlers — Indian, French, 

English, Spanish, Negro, Irish, 
Italian, whatever it might be— - 
each appeared to present its claims

Pi Gamma Mu's Hear Talk 
By L. P. Lochner, Berlin 
Newsman, At Annual Dinner 

The Pennsylvania Nu chapter of 
Pi Gammu Mu, the National Social 
Science Honor Society, located on 
the Lebanon Valley campus, held 
its first annual dinner meeting at 
the Hershey Community Center 
Dining Hall on Monday, April 25, 
at 7 P. M. A group of over one 
hundred persons, composed of 
members of the organization and 
their guests, members of the fac- 
ulty of Lebanon Valley College, 
and representative groups of sis- 
ter chapters located on the Al- 
bright campus and that of Lehigh 
University were in attendance. 

The invocation was offered by 
Rev. William A. Wilt, pastor of 
the college church, and Hilbert V. 
Lochner, professor of economics, 
served as toastmaster. Dr. Lynch 
gave a short address of congratu- 
lation to the chapter for the fine 
work which it has accomplished 
during its short period of reactiva- 
tion since October, 1948. The 
main address of the evening, 
"Rubbing Elbows with the Rus- 
sians in Berlin," was given by 
Dr. Louis P. Lochner of the As- 
sociated Press, New York. Dr. 
Lochner served as head of the 
AP news office in Berlin for 
nearly 25 years, has written sev- 
eral books, and is winner of 
the Pulitzer Prize for 1938. He 
presented to the group a first-hand 
glimpse of the real Russia behind 
the Iron Curtain, conditions today 
in Berlin, and the relations exist- 
ing among conquered Germany, 
Russia and the United States in 
that section of the world at the 
present time. 

Dr. W. Leon Godshall of the 
faculty of Lehigh University and 
chancellor of the eastern region of 
Pi Gamma Mu, Inc., presented Dr. 
Lochner with national honorary 
membership in the organization. 
Paul Mateyak, president of the Nu 
chapter, awarded the speaker an 
associate membership in the local 
branch of Pi Gamma Mu. 

The committee in charge of ar- 
rangements for the affair consist- 
ed of Prof. Lochner, chairman; 
Frank Huff, David Wallace, Doro- 
thy Smith, and Douglas Earich. 
The next meeting of the chapter 
will be held May 10 on the college 
campus at which time retiring 
president, Paul Mateyak, will 
make his farewell remarks and 
President-elect David Wallace, his 
inaugural address. This meeting 
will conclude the functioning of 
the chapter for this school year.

Valley Nine Drops Three Straight 
As Moravian, St. Joe's Win 6-3, 5-3 

The Lebanon Valley baseballers 
went down in defeat for the third 
straight time on Saturday as St. 
Joseph College of Philadelphia 
edged the Flying Dutchmen, 5-3. 
On Tuesday, April 26, Moravian 
tripped the Blue and White by a 
6-3 count. The games, both played 
at the local college field, set the 
LVC tossers record at 2-3. 

Lebanon Valley jumped out to 
a 1-0 lead in the first inning of the 
St. Joe tussle on "Hank" DiJohn- 
son's triple which scored "Chuck" 
Zimmerman, who had previously 
lashed out a single. The Flying 
Dutchmen added another run in 
the third frame when Bobby Hess 
singled, stole second and came in 
on Zimmerman's second hit of the 
afternoon. The visiting Philadel- 
phians scored their first run in 
the fifth inning after Freeman, 
who came through with a single, 
went to second on Neal Woll's er- 
ror, and scored on Dudek's hit. 
After LVC was retired in order 
in the home half of the fifth, the 
Saints went ahead with two more 
runs on two hits and Norm Luk- 
ens' error in the sixth. The sev- 
enth and eighth innings saw both 
sides being set down in order. The 
last frame however, proved disas- 
trous for LVC as the Hawks 
tagged hurler John Kennedy for 
two more hits, one a home run by 
Freeman with Sparanga, who had 
singled, on board. Lebanon Valley 
managed to produce only one run 
in the last of the ninth although 
the Blue and White batsmen 
touched the St. Joe pitcher for 
three hits and a walk. DiJohnson 
and Wally Hess both singled and 
after Norm Lukens fanned, and 
Sherdell Snyder went out, pinch- 
hitter Don Greer came through 
with a hit. Larry Kinsella then 
walked, but the game ended when 
Bobby Hess was out at first. 

Dudek went the route for the 
visitors, giving up 9 hits while 
walking one and fanning five. Ken- 
nedy, who was on the mound for 
LVC the first time this season, was 
scratched for 7 hits, while striking 
out the same number of Hawks; 
he issued no walks. 

In the game with Moravian, the 
visiting Bethlehemer's drew first 
blood on two errors by the third 
baseman, Norm Lukens. "Ham- 
mering Hank" DiJohnson, how- 
ever, made it a tie ball game when 
he slammed out a double which 
sent "Shorty" Fields across the 

plate. LVC registered another tal- 
ly in the third inning when Chuck 
Zimmerman singled, stole second, 
and raced home on DiJohnson's 
hit. Lebanon Valley didn't score 
again until the eighth, but mean- 
while a series of events happened. 
Mickey "Sunshine" Zajac had the 
Greyhounds handcuffed with only 
one hit, issued no free passes, 
struck out five and retired fifteen 
men in order up until the sixth 
inning when Garrin of Moravian 
was hit by one of his pitches. De- 
luva then popped to DiJohnson 
and Kuhn nicked Zajac for the 
visitor's 2nd bingle of the day. 
With two out, Coach Ralph Mease 
yanked Zajac and replaced him 
with Larry "The Whip" Kinsella 
who didn't come through in as fine 
a fashion as expected. Kinsella 
threw out Garrin who attempted 
to steal home, but in the next inn- 
ing Weperhowski went out, Hudak 
singled, as did Lobb and Stengele, 
and then Kinsella walked Keim 
and Weaver. Hudak was put out 
at home by a Jack Leeds to Di- 
Johnson peg on one of the previous 

Spring season has started in 
earnest. In the picture above, 
Hank Pi Johnson makes a val- 
iant, but vain effort to tag out 
a man at home in the Moravian 
game. The other guy won, as 
did Moravian, 5-3. 

Wally Womer (left), has 
been showing excellent form, as 
usual, on the tennis team this 
season. Mr. Dunnioyer's kids

well this year.

hits. Wally Hess then came in 
from right field, as Kinsella was 
chased to the showers, to take over 
the twirling chores. Hess walked 
in a run when Garrin was issued a 
base on balls and the Greyhounds 
added another registration as De- 
luva singled; finally Kuhn ground- 
ed out to Zimmerman to end the 
hectic eighth. The Flying Dutch- 
men added their last run in this 
inning when Zimmerman greeted 
relief pitcher Kaster with a rous- 
ing triple and tagged home on Di- 
Johnson's third connection of the 
afternoon. Werpehowski scored 
Moravian's lone run in the ninth. 

Hudak was the winning pitcher 
and he was nabbed for six hits 
while whiffing one. His reliefer, 
Kaster gave up three safeties and 
also struck out one. Kinsella was 
the losing twirler, giving up three 
hits and two walks in 2/3 innings. 
Zajac was scratched for 2 singles 
and fired the third strike past five 
Moravians in 6 and 2/3 innings 
while Hess issued one hit, two 
walks, and one strikeout in the 1 
and 2/3 innings he pitched. 

Apparently some of our 
letes don't believe they can

pating in some spring sports, 
So, some of them have resor 
to sun lamps to acquire fast tans 
. . .Well, in case any of you

info on the subject from some 
authority like Mickey Zajac, who 
was recently christened "Su 11 '

noon sun lamp escapade." 
Mickey toasted himself a nice

*Tis Done . . 

WITH this issue La Vie Collegiene completes its twenty-fifth year 
of publication. Inheriting its place as college newspaper from 
the magazine-type "College Forum" and the short-lived "Crucible," 
La Vie holds the distinction of being the longest consecutively pub- 
lished paper on this campus. 

On November 23, 1925, La Vie, edited by William Grill, made 
its first appearance as a bi-monthly at the rate of one dollar a year or 
five cents a copy. Walter Ness put the paper on a financially sound 
basis in 192 6 and H. Darkes Albright, now a professor of Speech and 
Drama at Cornell, took over in 1927 as La Vie became a vital part of 
campus life. 

John Reattie, 19 2 8, was followed by the first female editor of 
the paper's history, Esther Angstadt, in 1929. Russell Etter, present 
pastor of the Iona E. U. B. Church, delivered the paper into Ruth 
Shroyer's hands in 19 31. Ruth printed the original Green Blotter 

The first green Christinas edition made its appearance on De- 
cember 15, 1932, as the brain-child of Walter Krumbiegel. 

After Edmund Umberger, today a Math Instructor at Penn State, 
finished his tenure in office, Helen Earnest took over with a desire to 
economize. She printed seventeen issues of a paper the same size as 
the present La Vie. 

Editor by a misprint for one issue, April 15, 1937, was Mary 
Louise Stoner, who married the next editor, Charles Boyd Schaffer, 
now a Bio-chemist at the Mellon Institute. Howard Baier, at the pres- 
ent time a physician in Palmyra, Pa., followed in 193 8. 

Our present philosophy professor, Carl Ehrhart kept La Vie be- 
fore the eye of the student body during 19 39; and Charles Beittel, 
after one semester, gave the editorship to Jane Ehrhart, sister to Carl. 

David Shaner was drafted into the Army from his position when 
he followed Martha Davies of 1941. Louise Keller stepped into the 
unexpectedly vacated post. 

Bruce Souders, today a professor in English on the campus, 
brought the paper into a new style era in 1944. 

In 1945, a near-end-of-the-war-year, two girls, Frances Work- 
man and Christine Mumma, co-edited La Vie. 

Ted Keller, working for his M.A. at Columbia now, was the 
helmsman for our ship of journalism during 1946. Ronald Baker and 
Martha Matter Ely split the year of 1947-1948 between themselves. 
They are both still with us. 

For our twenty-fifth anniversary year the editor has been George 
Ely. George and Marty are the second pair of editors to unite in 
marital bliss. 

On this, our "Silver Anniversary," we of the present La Vie 
take this opportunity to thank and congratulate the past editors and 
the hundreds of unnamed reporters who helped to make La Vie what 
it is today. 

For our first twenty-five years, "Tis Done . . .", but we hope that 
we will be here to celebrate our Golden Anniversary. 


Last Monday, to the surprise of the major part of the student 
body, the new Quittie came out. This is the first time in years that the 
Quittie has been around before the close of the year, and considering 
that alone calls for sincere congratulations to the staff. However, its 
promptness isn't its only virtue. This Quittie is one of the finest ever.

Only a bop virtuoso could adopt eontei 
a garb like this. Crazy? sure ... the d< 
but they love it, and they throw the tl 
themselves into it with every doesn 
muscle and beat in their bodies ihoes 
. . . the bop, that is. Walla 
Louis Fried, in this be-bop get- , ^ 
up, doesn't play bop himself, but IMillei 
he surely can talk a tin-ear on jdidn't 
anyone about it. 1 I 

What is this thing called bop? that n 
It's the musical expression of ba- rollicl 
sic emotions. It had its beginning don't 
way back in the jungle. They the ti 
say you don't play be-bop ... you appea 
live it. When a bopper takes off on ompl 
a solo, all he starts with is the didn't 
rhythm . . . the music comes lues t 
straight from the heart. A real I 
bopper will not look at written Junio 
music. In one evening you may jicket 
hear "Sweet Georgia Brown" five 3ull ; 
times, and each time differently. Belle 
Be-bop is the red-headed step- Bpple 
child of Dixieland Jazz. It started 'arol 
in the clubs of Fifty-second Street our : 
in New York. Dizzy Gillespie 'oily 
played one of his first be-bop U Pa 
bands in the old "Downbeat" (ary 
on the same street. °th. 

From such an inconspicuous be- i 
ginning, be-bop graduated to x>w t 
Broadway. Overnight it flowered jhir 1 
into a new, important, but contro- eep 
versial style of music. 

Then the Clique Club on Broad- 

way hailed the arrival of bop by 
devoting itself completely to th* 
new noise. The Royal Roost fol- . 
lowed by building a bleacher sec- I g e 
tion where bop admirers could 
hear it a whole evening for sev- 
enty-five-cents. Subtitling i tse11 
The Metropolitan Bopera House, 
it attracted a teen-age crowd W 
installing a soda fountain. 

Over the Easter vacation " Bop 
City," owned by Benny Goodman, 
had its grand opening, playing 
capacity crowds. 

Dizzy Gillespie, king of » e ; b JFj 
has acquired as crown-prince 
such notable as Illinois Jacauei. 
Louis Armstrong, Harry James, 
and in his own feeble way, Ben °.. 
Goodman. The "king's subject 
are spread all over the country 


The hoppers have been P lay a u 
to standing-room-only crowds . 
over the world. France, Italy 'fg a 
England have all praised bop ^ 
new classic school of music ; 
the highest praise comes rr 
Russia. The Russian Pol 11 "".,

MAY DAY — We can now draw a sigh of relief with one of the 
ggest week-ends of the year a thing of the past . . . only exams to be 
ntended with . . . The weatherman almost interrupted May Day, but 
e decision of the Supreme Court to continue the festivities chased 
e threatening clouds away . . . Speaking of the Supreme Court — 
doesn't red hair become Ray Kline? . . . Jerry Pratt and his saddle 
shoes . . . what the well-dressed Justice will wear . . . orchids to Dave 
Wallace for keeping such a straight face during his various antics. 

What a luscious queen Jan Weaver made! And petite Marcie 
Miller was a charming Maid-of-Honor. As for the rest of the Court — 
m Jidn't know that Valley possessed such pulchritude. 

Now we know why McCoy accepted a solo role . . . just to drive 
at motor scooter. Jim "Ferdi" Geilselhart and Paul "Nand" Murphy 
llicking over the campus. Guess those "Keep off the Grass" signs 
lon't apply to bulls. Jack Springer's buddy from F&M helping out 
the tumblers. The appetites aroused by the jitterbugs' picnic quickly 
appeased by the Y refreshment stand. And what May Day would be 
:omplete without the traditional May Pole dance. The streamers 
le lidn't even get tangled. The mischief makers must have gotten their 
g jeues tangled instead.

Home Coming 



Springtime, as it applies to college students, generally pro- 
duces a uniform pattern of reactions among those who live in a 
^orld of books and examinations when normal human beings are 
^ore properly concerned with Sunday's double-header, or a niid- 
aftemoon siesta. Jeanne Bozarth here registers a few typical 
responses to Springtime campus phenomena:

Lebanon Valley's baseball nine registered its sixth victory In 
eleven starts and fourth in a row on Saturday as they defeated Mor- 
avian College 6-4 in a game halted by rain after five innings of play 
at Bethlehem. Moravian scored first, but LVC came back to tie it up 
at 1-all in the second inning when "Hank" Di Johnson set sail a home 
run ball over the left field fence. Moravian came back in the third

ing Dutchmen whipped their arch 
rivals, Albright, by 6-1 on May 9, 
in Annville. Zajac pitched no hit

Roaring Lions managed to score 
their lone run in the fifth when 
Fromuth walked and came down 
on Mike's wild pitch. A disputed 
play occurred as Fromuth slid 
home and the umpire ruled Zajac 
did not touch him early enough 
with the ball that Di Johnson 
ran back to pick up. Neal Woll

In cities and towns all over Pennsyl- 
vania, you'll find telephone men and 

There are more than 32,100 of these 
men and women employed today — 
operating, installing, and maintaining 
telephone equipment so that you may 
enjoy round-the-clock telephone service. 

You know many of these men and 
women. They are your friends and 
neighbors. They share your interest 

in your community, attend your church, 
send their children to your school, work 
with you on local charity drives. They 
shop where you shop, bank where you 
bank, play where you play. 

They are, in short, good citizens . . • 
as important to the welfare of the com- 
munities in which they live as the 
welfare of the telephone business is 
important to them.
